Jobseeking Surrounded By Fictions, Myths And Convenient Narratives | Welfare Weekly
It is worth remembering that the origin of the social welfare payments by the state was to stop these kinds of moral judgements being made about a deserving and an undeserving poor. The state officially supports the stereotype of sympathy for the ‘deserving poor’ and scorn for the near criminality on the part of ‘scroungers’. [...] unemployed people are forced to drink this [Tories] cool-aid or face destitution. [...] Underlying all this is the deeper fiction that individuals are responsible for their own state of unemployment. [...] There is a broader change in the world of work, - neo-liberalism - whereby the rules developed at the height of the industrial revolution are now fully circumvented by employers [...] transfer the risk and responsibility around labour from the organisation (and state - ie keeping national workforce competitive through various means of education) to the individual. [...] leading 2 lowest common denominator regulation. [short-term, price fight, dereg]

The real victims of increased tuition fees? The old
Applications from 18-year-olds are on the rise, including from Britain's poorest families. But part-time and mature students are being deterred. [...] George Osborne talks of his vision of moving to a “higher wage economy”. But while improvement in skills are necessary to lifting productivity, wages and boosting growth, adults are being put off investing in their education. The consequences are particularly deleterious for those from disadvantaged backgrounds, who are more likely to apply to university later and on a part-time basis; the unattractiveness of part-time courses thus imperils social mobility. [...] The fees system for mature and part-time students is putting too many off developing the skills they need for the UK to thrive. [ at least fund a scheme for public-private partnership w companies to chip in ~30% of the cost for their employees ]

Who wins from workplace flexibility? - BBC News
It has to do with something economists call 'the backward bending supply curve of labour.' As with much of economics, this gymnastic-sounding graphic concept is much simpler than it sounds. On the y-axis is pay: on the x-axis hours worked. At low levels of pay, people have to work long hours to make ends meet. Pay them more, give them more security, and they want more time to themselves. Pay them lots, and they offer fewer hours because they want more leisure time, and the opportunity to spend all that moolah. That's where the curve bends back. [...] A big problem with depending on freelance workers or overtime is that you can't be sure the staff are available when vital services need them. And in a sellers' market for working hours, the trains and the health service find themselves in trouble. ... Workforce planning
