My Dad lost his job as an Electronic and Electrical Engineer with British Steel in 1989. He spent almost two years out of work, desperately applying for anything he could find, reporting stories of how the Job Centre and other 'employment providers' would bully, intimidate and look down upon the very people they were supposed to be helping.
A friend of mine with a first-class honours degree in English Literature and Philosophy cannot get a job. She suffers from neurological problems that cause crippling migraines, but she is still incredibly pleasant and clever with a degree under her belt... and she is telling me the exact same stories I heard fro my dad back in 89/90.
We never learn.
