In order to decrease unemployment, the previous right-wing government of Finland introduced a policy that cuts your unemployment benefits every eight weeks if you don't work part-time or participate in a training program for the unemployed*. Unsurprisingly, the decrease in unemployment during the existence of this policy can't be separated from the trend in global economy. Since the only proven effect of the policy is many unemployed having their benefits cut the current center-left government is planning to scrap the model. The proponents of the policy aren't taking this without fight.



"You can easily avoid the cut - by getting a job."

Juhana Vartiainen is one of the most most visible economists in the Finnish media. Yes. An economist. Someone whose opinion influences public opinion and government policies. His solution to unemployment is more individual effort by the unemployed and hitting them with a figurative stick to motivate them.

*This training is provided by private contractors and paid from public funds with many programs being notoriously useless and demaning for anyone already possessing basic job hunting skills. In rural areas there aren't enough of these providers to serve all the applicants so many unemployed don't even have the means to fulfill the demands of the policy.

yeah as someone who's been trying to get a job for a month now and applying several times a week, who can't really afford a paid hygiene/fire safety pass course to broaden his options since those are like a quarter of his current monthly income, and who's gonna feel the aktiivimalli next month no matter what since all those training programs he applied for don't start until next month: haistappa kokeeks vittu, juhana kusiainen

lemme just wear my job helmet and fire myself out of the job cannon into job land where jobs grow on trees, since that's apparently how that works

The good old "blame the poor for capitalism's mistakes", meanwhile CEOs get bonuses every time they do layoffs.

Well he obviously can't be racist, he gives the same advice to non-whites!
Quote from: Jordan Duram
It doesn't concern you, Sister, that kind of absolutist view of the universe? Right and wrong determined solely by a single all-knowing, all powerful being whose judgment cannot be questioned and in whose name the most horrendous acts can be sanctioned without appeal?

Quote from: Supreme Court of Canada
Being required by someone else’s religious beliefs to behave contrary to one’s sexual identity is degrading and disrespectful.

Among the other things wrong with this, there are fruits that have been grown and eaten in Europe for thousands of years like grapes, pears and apples.  Even if Europeans weren't able to digest tomatoes or Bananas which only arrived in the continent recently (and they obviously can) they could eat these fruits easily.

Grapes didn't exist in France I guess. Nor olives in Italy and Greece. Or, hell, tomatoes.

Well they have only had tomatoes in Italy since the 16th century as they are native to south america, the same with potatoes in Ireland and chillies in asia.

Grapes were introduced to France(Gaul) by the greeks and the romans in the first two centuries BC.

Very fair in regards to tomatoes. I stand by my grapes and olives statement.

Well you're right because of the grapes, olives and a horde of other fruit from apples to pomegranates
