It amazes me how people who win the lottery every week, who win the millions for example, how on earth they need that amount of money all for themselves?.
I believe that it would be pure greed to have that kind of money and even more so if that person has a home of their own and can afford to run a car. I have none of these things and am not skilled to do a particular job even though I am educated through my own efforts and have done it all myself.
Being skilled is something else and why there are unemployed people out there who can’t get the training without having the money to subsidize their training in the first place. No one wants to be out of work and no one wants to be unskilled but yet, the national lottery gives out millions each week to people who don’t really have a need for that kind of money.
I think the national lottery should put into skills and training to resolve poverty that is long term.
Just worthy of a mention – the government will not pay for the unemployed to do certain courses only free or cheap ones that do nothing to build real skills or offer real prospects.
