    No it's not but we could design the benefits system to better account for those coming in and out of seasonal work. That we seem unable to mobilise a mass of young people to harvest crops is a major failure that has to be addressed. We were able to do it in the past so no reason we can't do it today.

    We have record low unemployment and record high employment, which means there must be an army of lazy bums just waiting to be put on crop picking duty. Hilarious.

    Only because the government continually redefines unemployed.

    Are you suggesting governments never massage figures to suit themselves? Why do you think every week the government rolls out new statistics that tell us how brilliant there are when a cursory look at reality reveals it to be nonsense? Despite the headline figure of 4.5% unemployed (still easily enough people to harvest crops) 14% of households are workless.

    He's probably suggesting governments don't get to define what "employed" and "unemployed" mean

    Because much like you don't get to declare little boys wearing pink to be the downfall of western civilisation, governments don't get to redefine words.

    Unless you're french.

    But they absolutely do define unemployment., in particular by defining what they don't consider to be unemployment

    Absolutely right

    Well, if we're redefining "absolutely" to just mean "THE FOLLOWING WORDS ARE ALL WRONG"

    Here's the definition of workless household:
    Households where no-one aged 16 or over is in employment. These members may be unemployed or economically inactive. Economically inactive members may be unavailable to work because of family commitments, retirement or study, or unable to work through sickness or disability.
    Better get those wheelchair bound grandmas out in the fields! I can't believe such idiocy can work out how to post.

    Your definition excludes those who are working part time but want full time work which is also included in the ONS definition. Also at least some portion of students will actually be merely enrolled and not actually studying.

    And you think those underemployed people will want to jack in whatever employment they have to relocate for a few months to pick crops? A job that's likely to pay no better and possibly even worse? Good god man, do you even bother to try and think through what you're posting?
