In the UK the publicly released jobless figures are artificially low owing to the fact that they do not include unemployed workers over 60. Moreover, the method of calculating unemployment figures has chaged several times in the last 50 years in a manner that makes the jobless total look smaller than it would be had the method of calculation remained the same. We need honest unemployment figures, not cynically massaged ones. Only then will we have a correct understanding of the problem.

Due to the lowering of education standards, many UK kids are leaving school unable to read, write or spell properly and have minimal numeracy. Some of these young people are basically unemployable.

In Ireland most public sector workers are married to public sector workers two wages from the taxpayer while we have massive unemployment. Their should only be one public sector job allowed per household this alone would fairly share the burden and end the unemployment problem overnight. Nor should they be allowed to collect two payments from the taxpayer pension etc. and a salary.

Ireland is spending its scarce resources on training people for the modern knowledge economy but is heavily dependent on foreign direct investment. Ireland has a good pool of well eucated English speaking young people who adapt quickly to new ideas.

most unemployments are found in lesser developed nations as the list had shown , the problems is more a result of underdevelopment rather than world relations, infracture and ability to produce is the main concern , not everybody is a good producer and the point is to be one, its not others to blame if you are not able to produce but to produce as a producer can

it seems that the highest unemployment rate is among the less developed countries where industrial capability is much lesser, in this case the cause of unemployment is not such a result of international relations but more a reason of the nation's ability to produce and to invest. its infracture and leading intelligence the prime concern, and not world relations and not race problems to blame. and industry and productivity itself also needs human character and human attitude and human personality for it. not everybody is a good producer. and the point is to be one

The disproportionate amount of foreign nationals that have entered the Irish labor force is undermining the efforts of native Irish to find jobs. One only has to visit a bar, hotel or restaurant in Ireland to see how many foreign workers there are in the country. Also a large percentage of those on welfare are foreign. Ireland opened its doors to too many during the so called boom and now it is a bankrupt state incapable of looking after its own.
