After the latest EU summit, the Taoiseach Enda Kenny has said “EU leaders have acted in a decisive manner and the deal allows for a much improved environment within the eurozone, in which Ireland can focus on creating real opportunities for jobs and getting people back to work.” His main focus seems to be on job creation, but is that the answer to our problems?
What most people want is a life, and not just a job, just ask anyone that is still in a job, but for whom life has become a constant struggle, an ever ending juggling act in an effort to keep a roof over their families head and food on their table.
For most people, a job is a vital part of having a full and meaningful life, but not when the Government takes more and more of what you earn each month and most of what is left goes to service inflated debts that were entered into under different times, many people today that have jobs are finding themselves penniless before the next payday comes around and then the whole treadmill starts all over again for the following month. We are then told that the solution to our problems is to work longer and harder and for more years, but that will just lead to the Government taking even more of our money from us, this is in effect nothing more than slavery, we have allowed ourselves to become slaves.
So I say to this Government, jobs alone are not the answer, give us back out lives, give us a quality of life that has more than spending it working, we have but a short time between the cradle and the grave do we really want to spend all that time in work, to pay for the mistakes of others?
