You Have a Right and You Have a Wrong.

In regards to my previous post, it seems that the job market is not necessarily singling me out...unemployment is at an all time high (see here) and David Cameron says he would love to do something about it, if it wasn't for that dammed deficit.The Right to Work is one of our human rights, (see Article 23 of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights Our human rights are supposed  to be protected by the state. Therefore, should Cameron and his cronies be doing more to get us jobs? If I'm unemployed for a certain amount of time and if the government doesn't hand me a job then can I take my case to the European Court of Human Rights? What graduates like myself, and other young people, need is greater opportunity. Such as graduate schemes, apprenticeships and paid internships (or at least an allowance so porpers like myself can afford to do unpaid internships.) It is clearly up to the government to provide these opportunities in order to mold us into the tax paying, upstanding citizens they crave. Furthermore, is there a case for Derbyshire firm, Bombardier (see.... here)? They have been forced to cut 1,400 jobs after the government backed plans to move train manufacture to a German company. Should the government do more to protect the interests of British companies regardless of where the cheapest contract can be found? Are the human rights of the workers of such firms compromised by the governments decision to take it's business overseas?
And finally, according to the Universal Declaration under the right to work, we have the right to ensure "an existence worthy of human dignity," in that case I determine that having to live with my parents because I can't afford to move out is a breach of my human rights!
You have a Right and you have a Wrong.
