Employment Exchanges

I was watching Control the other night (which I thoroughly enjoyed) and Ian Curtis works in the Employment Exchange. I don’t know why, but I really liked the term Employment Exchange. It just sounds so much more two-sided than ‘Job Centre’.

In fact Employment Exchange sounds very 2.0 compared to the Job Centre’s 1.0ness.

One thought on “Employment Exchanges”

  1. I watched ‘ Control’ the other night as well. Good film. Quite touching in a strange way. Nothing like ‘Touching from a Distance’ which portrayed the story in a very different light. Two sides to every story.
