If an employer had real vacancies, those Job Centre temp workers saved those employers a fortune.

They don't even really try in British Columbia here to get people on assistance back into the workforce, in theory in policy they do, but in reality they don't, they go with the, lets provide so little nobody except the most desperately in need will seek assistance method.

But on occasion they will pay you to attend job type programs through non-profits. I went to one once, they paid me $300 to spend 4 hours a day listening to some 20 year old about how to find a job. It was of no use, but hey made me $1,200 that month.....lol

I realized something today, since the NDP got in power 3 years ago, the Ministry of Poverty or whatever their name is now, has not contacted us once, during the BC Liberal days they spent who knows how many hours trying to find ways to kick us off disability, they never succeeded since we legitimately quality, but BC Liberals would do anything to get rid of disability and social assistance if they could.

We had one of those in our local office in the late 80s., and there was probably one in most offices...

One jobseeker I knew in his late twenties, got sent on so many courses away that he moved to the next town so he didn't have to deal with the officer. Another officer helped him get a job within a few weeks, and a few months later, the first officer came for a clerical job interview cause they'd closed his office.

Good idea. And maybe afterwards the police can re-purpose it for transferring to jail all the BLM/Antifa rioters and looters.
