*************************************my body, my mind, my choice!
Got to the bottom of page 1 and had to reply. The canary islands and spain have the right kind of system. I moved here with a few hundred euros. I had to get correct paperwork before I could find a job and if you havent got the papers AND paid into the system for over a year then you are entitled to diddly shit. Even now... If I quit my job I get my medical ONLY. If Im sacked or the business goes bust, I have 10 days to claim social benefits and even then I only get a certain amount for a certain time depending on my past contributions. Ive been in the system for 10 years so Id probably get about 700-900 euros a month for a few years but If I find work before the time is up, I get a bonus added to my payments and my new employer would get a cash bonus for hiring me. The system works well out here. Would be better if it worked like this in the UK. Also I got no help in finding out what I needed from the government, I had to ask other locals who live here and the place where you get the papers from refuses to speak any language but spanish, forcing me to learn!!!! If all the immigrants in the uk had to do this there would be a hell of a lot less of them!!!!

Just because you're paranoid, don't mean they're not after you!
A smart man makes a mistake, learns from it, and never makes that mistake again.
But a wise man finds a smart man and learns from him how to avoid the mistake altogether.
That's the magic of THCtalk to me
For example the company I work for is posting record profits. There are jobs to be had and in many areas unemployment is a choice not a condition where one has no options. The stock market is doing well and banks are moving money again. I would disagree that it is just surviving. It's certainly seen better days but since we just came out of the worst economic period since our Great Depression it's doing very well.
We actually have very good health care if you can pay for insurance or if you are on welfare and the state is paying your way. Our healthcare is just very expensive. We don't have socialized medicine so that's a nasty shock to people that do.
If someone were wanting to move to America the healthcare costs would be a concern.
Glad things have picked up there as I have been concerned for several of my USA friends.
Cheers hun xo
Most of these stories are bullsh*t just to get us hating immigrants.
It is possible, same shit here in Sweden :/
one of the biggest problems in the uk isthe house prices are kept to high. their is a supposed shortage of houses. their for demand keeps prices up. no government will start a mass building program cos that would bring the average price down. even the labour party , the suppoed party of the working man. the top bods live in multi million pound houses and would see a net worth decline in their personnal wealth . and thats a western standard we are judged on. to live in london is expensive cos demand is greatest so values rise and rents are a proportion of value. people with to much money buy a second house as an investment and who wants to loose money . personnal greed has a lot to do with it . a house is seen as an investment not a home. as a homeless person in the past , but have never been unemployed its still hard to find affordable homes . many yonks ago the lending companies were only allowd to lend on one sallery of a joint income. when that was changed to both salleries prices jumped. my veiw is if they can't build the houses then they shouldn't allow extrapeople into the country. my single sallery for my family is competing against houses now that have upto five or six salleries to pay bills . 50% of my income goes in rent. their are to many nimbies and how will our kids afford homes. wages fall as the jobs market is flooded with cheaper labour . my job now pays 25% less than 5 year ago. i earned more in the late 1980's than now. . if i had a wife and kids why should i work when the state payments will be about £60 a month less than i am on working.
yes those who opt to dedicate their time to the saftey of this country by working in the forces do get shafted by being tossed out into civy street often after years of service in underpaid jobs. and if your single the you get very little. i know three ex servicemen who rent a caravan cos benifits will not pay for flat for them. i have a mate who has and never will work. has a house . two kids , gf. he gets more from the state than i could have working. they have sat tv. holidays . car, things i struggle to have. and they complain that its during the recession and they might get their benifits trimmed.
