While we all wish for an easier time in life, and to get out of debt, there are signs Christchurch has been hit harder than most places. One of the main things that is affecting the economy is the number of people who have lost their jobs. Not just that, but the unemployment figures are continuing to rise, with more people turning to short-term employment, to put a little money in their pockets.
Signs of a Tough Economy
If you’ve been unemployed in Christchurch, it’s important to check into your options. The number of people looking into the unemployed service are at an all time high. There is a lot of advice available online, so take advantage of this and learn how to find work. You’ll be surprised at some of the low paying jobs available, in fact, many of these are jobs that you might not have thought of before. With all of the negative economic news going around, you can’t really blame anyone for needing to make money.
With Christchurch, being unemployed is a lot harder than in other cities. However, there are a few ways that you can still try and get a job, such as through the government. This may be your only hope of finding work, or to save up and look for a job. The government has several programs available, including Youthcare, that can help you if you have been laid off and need to find something. They are able to help you find jobs, but they need to know about your situation first, in order to find you a good placement. So, if you’re not employed yet, it’s important to apply to the youth care first, and see if they can find you a placement. It could save you a lot of money!
