Over the hill and on the scrap-heap?
Review of Unemployed After 50 by CelticSoulSister

Advantages: Some companies are now starting to see sense
Disadvantages: Some companies will never see sense

I’d hit the ripe old age of 52 and to cut a very long story short, I was in a Hobson’s Choice situation which forced me to ask the company I worked for if they’d consider making me redundant…..they agreed to, although I’d only get the barest minimum pay-o ... Read review

Review of Unemployed After 50 by hiker

Advantages: Being unemployed can open up new opportunities
Disadvantages: It's not fun in the meantime, and it's not easy to get out of

Decent piece. A mindset can hamper choice. I know of many individuals who take on-board colleagues' critiques to the point it stays with them and shapes who/what they become. A governance incentive is required along the same vein as employing young people. by 1st2thebar

As old as you make yourself feel
Review of Unemployed After 50 by ryanando

Advantages: You are only as old as you make yourself feel.
Disadvantages: Sometimes you can make yourself feel pretty old.

Die Trying So you’re over fifty? Might as well pack it in now then I guess eh? Take Boxer to the glue factory and be done with it. Being that I’m in my late twenties, I shall happily condemn you all to a lifetime of jobless misery from the point yo ... Read review

It's a question of experience v potential
Review of Unemployed After 50 by supercityfan

Advantages: There are none
Disadvantages: Long Term Unemployed, Families Suffer

Despite not reaching my half decade as yet, I feel well equipped to write on this subject having been made redundant myself in 2013 at the age of 46, together with colleagues who were the wrong side of 50. Whilst I, after a relative struggle have managed ... Read review

Scrap heap workers wanted in Northampton. Must be over 50 though.
Review of Unemployed After 50 by thedevilinme

Advantages: Thee is work about
Disadvantages: Its low paid and zero hours

My hometown of Northampton made the news recently because the locals, apparently, didn’t fancy packing sandwiches for employment. Greencore, one of the world’s biggest catering companies, chose to advertise 300 jobs for their new Northampton factory in Hu ... Read review

Interesting viewpoint. It does strike me as odd though, that the 'free movement of labour' element of the original Treaty of Rome and, so far as I know still enshrined as a fundamental of EU membership, was never a problem when it was a case of our lads working on German building sites, but it somehow is, now that's its Poles on our sites. by hiker

Review of Unemployed After 50 by Jinn2

Advantages: ..None at all
Disadvantages: Harsh reality, brutal job market, etc

Alright, first off, I must admit that I am just a college student, so you're more than welcome to take my review as a grain of salt. However, though, due to pivotal circumstances my mother has faced over the past few months (her job ending, searching for ... Read review

Not good to be unemployed at any age but they do have experience
Review of Unemployed After 50 by rolandrat123

Imaginary Friends
Review of Is Religion As Popular As It Used To Be? by 1st2thebar

Advantages: Religion stimulates debate
Disadvantages: Religion stimulates hate

Religion will always be ubiquitous, wherever humans reside. I may stick my neck out and say we’re unlikely to function without religion; it coexists alongside us, along our daily path of uncertainties – not surprising that we invite an imaginary friend to ... Read review

Maybe some aspects of religion should be more popular today?
Review of Is Religion As Popular As It Used To Be? by river61

Advantages: Helps with health problems & loneliness; encourages community spirit; links with past
Disadvantages: Religious wars; sometimes out of touch with modern life.

My frame of reference: I will take the definition of ‘religion’ to be ‘The belief & worship of a superhuman controlling power, especially a personal God or Gods’ [from Google]. The UK only will be considered; as will be Christians & Moslems [the 2 biggest ... Read review

Advantages: Acceptance, being part of a global family, having a purpose in life
Disadvantages: A vocal minority are rule-driven, manipulative or angry

The word ‘religion’ is an ambiguous one. We understand it as referring to sets of beliefs such as Buddhism, Judaism, Christianity, Islam, and so on. It’s also often used to refer to the sets of rules or guidelines that such faith systems may expect of the ... Read review

Review of Is Religion As Popular As It Used To Be? by sharper_fin

Advantages: Religion works if everyone you know has the same view
Disadvantages: Religion causes more wars than anything else. How could any god condone that?

I'm a middle-aged white man, brought up in a loving, stable home in the north of England. Although neither of my parents were church attendees I was 'encouraged' to go to Sunday school every week to learn the good teachings of my local Methodist church. T ... Read review

Disadvantages: People might take this the wrong way
