  • Proposed features/Jobcentre (plus) - Proposal for amenity=jobcentre. Although labelled as "abandoned", this has been used a fair bit. In the UK there's government run things called a "job centre", which also manage job seekers allowance benefits payments. They're branded "jobcentre" or "jobcentre (plus)".

TODO: Discuss. Either we should make a distinction with a different top-level tag for government run offices, or we should treat this office=employment_agency tag as all encompassing, and propose to make the distinction with an additional combo tag.
