Unemployed to be conscripted into wildfire recovery teams

The government has come up with a cunning plan to get those unemployed slackers off their sofas and back to work:

They’re going to conscript them into wildfire recovery teams.

Since we don’t have any industry, any work or any futures, the government thinks the huge swath (hovering about 40% in Almeria) of unemployed may as well get out there with a bucket and spade and clean up the mess left by wildfires. You’re not expected to actually fight the fire, just clean it up, replant the trees and remove the carcasses of the dead tortoises / wild boars / tramps / etc.

The callup would be managed by local townhalls and the call would go out to neighbouring townhalls as well. The local unemployment office would supply a list of potential workers, and the townhalls / Diputaciones would have to provide the equipment.

You’d need  a good excuse not to attend the call, but if you’re young and fit you are expected to attend, and if you don’t, you get a black mark which could lead to you losing your unemployment benefit, such as it is.

You only get paid if the townhall decides to extend your hours above a certain limit, although the townhall will have to pay social security and unemployment benefit for you, so that does get topped up, and if you break a leg or inhale too much smoke it will be treated as a work related accident.

Actually, it doesn’t sound that bad an idea…

  1. now it theyd stop requiring developers to build low cost housing as a condition of granting planning permissions the construction industry might start again .

  2. How about actually paying them a proper wage to do the job so they actually have money to spend with local businesses, rather than just penalising people for unemployed in a crisis their banking pals created? 🙄

    Hugh Graham – re low cost housing. Do you really believe that the reason builders aren’t building houses is because of that? There are hundreds of thousands of unsold properties sitting rotting. Only a complete idiot would even think of sinking millions into that money pit. You might as well go and blow those millions at the betting shop. At least there is a *chance* that will pay out.

  3. As a lifelong DC metro area reenisdt, I can tell you that the Federal government workers there, on average, are very very spoiled and do. nothing. for society.Nationwide, Fed workers average salaries are $70k/year (more than $100k/year if you include benefits -and my oh my, they have the best there too). Average non-Federal worker salary? About $35k/year.They are greedy at the Federal trough for sure but it’s the system that is broken and well beyond repair. The irony is that they are mostly a bunch of one-world-government, globalist types, who are killing themselves through their agenda to incorporate the planet.The only jobs (in bulk) being opened today are for the military and for any agency which can be used to control the populace (DHS, FBI, FEMA, etc.).They know what’s coming . official (deceptive) unemployment is 10.2%. That’s what’s know as the U-3. Useful only for comparison purposes to other U-3 numbers. The REAL unemployment rate is the U-6, currently the gov’t (are we getting it? not your friends!) has the U-6 at 17-18%, BUT, even this they fudge. They use an unrealistic component to it (death rate I believe) to make it softer than it really is.Bob Chapman of TheInternationalForecaster.com has current U-6 as of this past Friday (11/06/09) as 22.4%.Folks, that’s a GREATEST depression number.This all by design by the globalists and their international banksters. Watch for pandemics of the strange kind (look at Ukraine now something bad happening there, and it ain’t the flu.)Pandemics, martial law, it’s all coming BY DESIGN. Have you read Atlas Shrugged? That novel is the globalist’s esoteric message (meaning a message for them, the elected NOT for you and me) to their fellow travelers as to HOW America will be destroyed. All by design. All on purpose.If it feels depressing and overwhelming, that’s because it is without the armor of Lord God in Heaven. The globalists have their god lucifer that’s why they they are winning the battle so far.We are not fighting flesh and blood .we need to put on the armor of God to be saved from the evil coming, the evil that is HERE .Please don’t dismiss this warning .your eternal soul is at stake.
