Jobs are so scarce, hundreds applying. I’m applying all the time, but get no response. Depression has set in because I have a growing debt. The bank is charging me 40% interest on my overdraft, so that’s effectively UC money going direct to the bank. I’m in debt to the gas, electric and water. I had my internet cut off for six months over the summer, which made it impossible to look for work. I just wish the govt would create more jobs — a lot more and give us stimulus cheque like in the US, or cancel our debts. The debt collectors aren’t being heavy handed yet, but they will be.
