Employed, Unemployed, Self Employed (Whatever)

Employed, Unemployed, Self Employed (Whatever) – Diary of an Employable Blogaholic Sometimes it is easy to get caught up in the moment. Especially when you are caught up in the realities of unemployment and unemployment benefits. Apart from the actual reality that unemployment benefit makes up a small percentage of what the UK government pays […]
