Self-employed, but not by choice

Sir -- I refer to 'Letter of the Week' about the self-employed.

(Sunday Independent, Oct 31, 2010). I am self-employed and out of work and I get nothing from the State after paying 10 years' of tax. I had no choice about being self-employed because the main contractor would not take me on directly. I know there are thousands more like me. It's a very unfair system, especially when there are people living here just a few weeks getting six hundred euro plus in benefits and rent allowance.
