Le suicide du demandeur d'emploi Martin Hadfield : un interlocuteur de la radio admet qu'il a essayé de se tuer tandis qu'il était chômeur
Ryan, 29, a dit qu'il a voulu rappeler aux demandeurs d'emploi qu'il y a l'espoir et ils ne devraient pas se sentir honteux en revendiquant l'Allocation des Demandeurs d'emploi.

Ryan a raison, mais le suicide de Martin est victime d'une condamnation sociale, résultat d'une société basé sur le culte du héros ou de l'élite. Mais comment en finir avec ?

Le problème c'est que les offres d'emploi sont très inférieures à la demande et concernent souvent des métiers pénibles ou des professions à fort niveau de qualification (bac+5 ou 8) avec une demande d'expérience et une limite d'âge :  trente ans en général donc huit ans d'études + cinq ans d'expérience :  il faut avoir le bac à 17 ans. Mais la majorité de la population ne fait pas parti de l'élite et nous ne sommes pas tous des endurcis capables travailler aux galères.

Plus que jamais il faut pousser à la création de liens de sympathie entre les travailleurs privés d'emploi et les employés.

Le travail n'est pas "une chance" mais un droit
