A matter of terms...

Looking for a job or looking for work?

They aren't the same thing.

I've struck a hell of a lot who want a job, but have no real intention of working. An experience no doubt shared by anyone in the hiring and firing game.

This was at it's most obvious in the prison system. All the crims wanted a job. A very small minority wanted to WORK.

In other words, they wanted money for sitting about doing as little as possible.

Fairly common everywhere, it's just a matter of degree.

Personally, sitting about idly has no great appeal to me- the day drags too much.

I may be in a minority here, but that is nothing new to me...
