"In the UK, if you are out of work, the government gives you cash, jobseekers allowance, about £3.8k a year."

No they don't.

If you are unemployed, and you sign on and agree to a job search agreement, where you agree to spend many hours a week searching for and applying for jobs, and confirm this with proof every two weeks, then you will get an electronic funds transfer to your bank account of about £3.8k a year.
