Unemployed Net Media Campaign

Wed, 08/02/2012 - 17:16 -- nick
Our first campaign focuses on the media and the way unemployment and benefit issues are reported. We believe that negative coverage erodes the confidence of unemployed people and benefit recipients, leads to negative judgements by those around us and employers, and makes it harder for us to gain work. Over one million more people have become unemployed since 2007; does this mean one million more people lack character, are workshy or immoral, or has the economy broken down to the extent that it is not creating enough jobs? The media need to get on board with the new reality - stop blaming us for things we can't control.
