Irish broad rate of unemployment at 17% in March 2018

The Irish broad rate of unemployment was at 17% at the end of the first quarter of 2018.

The Central Statistics Office (CSO) on Wednesday published the latest Labour Force Survey showing that the seasonally adjusted headline unemployment rate was 5.8% for Q1 2018 and the seasonally adjusted number of persons unemployed decreased by 12,900 to 137,300 (133,000 actual count) — the headline rate is based on employment of at least one hour per week according to an International Labour Organisation definition.

These unemployment rates are complete & utter bullshit.

The unemployment rate in Ireland is probably around 95 per cent.

I have been unemployed for six years, with brief stints. I recently came to the conclusion that there is no point in even trying to get a job & have devoted myself to reading, while staying in people's apartments.

Since 2016 social welfare spend has been increasing by 500 million to 750 million per year. 21.2 billion will be spend on social welfare in 2020 based on current unemployment rate of 5.4%, 14.5% for young people aged 18 to 24. So as the 'unemployment' rate drops the spend on social welfare increases. 2020 will cost about 1.5 billion more than 2017.

The civil service wage bill will be less than the social welfare bill at about 19 billion plus the 2.5 billion being paid out in pensions in excess of the contributions from public servants. But that is for 330,000 people compared to the 2 million that get a social welfare payment.

The two combined will be about 65% of total government expenditure.

National debt at 226 billion today.
