    I don't see how 'giving it a name' would help, it would only add to stigmatisation.

    Right, because people can't merely be unemployed, it has to be part of some psychosocial "unemployment syndrome", for which we need a questionnaire? What ever happened to old fashioned communication?

    I think "unemployment syndrome" is some sort of bad translation as there are no references of this in the literature, in terms of something that an individual would suffer from.

    It's funny how instead of dealing with a societal phenomena, with distinct sociological factors, the focus is still on a magic fix that tells the individual to pick themselves up with their own bootstraps.

    I suppose that if someone did not study this it would mean one more person unemployed. At least.

    I have attempted to give my opinion on this a few times this morning.

    I can't.

    It's just so absurd I end up ranting for pages.

    So.

    There are Markov chain bots that are more coherent than this.

    Clearly one solution to unemployment syndrome is to hand out employment to people whose work is about equivalent to throwing a bunch of cue cards with vague concepts down some stairs while yelling "BPS BPS BPS" and tacking together all those that fall side down on even stairs.

    Yet another example of how fundamental attribution errors need to be reined in as they seem to be growing. People who reject reality and substitute their own never contribute anything of value to science, no matter how many years of education they have.

    Call me old fashioned, but I always thought the cure for unemployment and its consequences was employment, not being psychologised.

    Nah, the cure for unemployment is being in a socioeconomic class that doesn't require employment.

    On a personal level, if I had a few hundred million then being unemployed wouldn't bother me, or any nurses, at all.

    Being unemployed isn't the problem, it's being unemployed with insufficient money thats' the problem.

    The solution seems both obvious and simple.
