  • How about giving them grants to go to college you morons. Labour cannot possibly get my vote now. Not possibly.

      Hi Sam, I think the exact same as you – I have the skills; I have been trained and yet because I won’t be used by companies such as McDonald’s who will employ me on an ‘apprenticeship (apprentice counter assistant)’ which will mean I’m on £2.46 an hour. I fight for the working class and the ‘real’ unemployed, not the figures big news corporations give out. It’s why I’m a Socialist and will vote TUSC.

      Labour are heading towards the right; trying to be friends with Farage and Cameron – this will not help Labour win votes from the youth.

      I’m tired of looking for jobs; I think I’m on my 250 job application, and I’ve only ever been invited for two interviews – both on zero hour contracts and both for the same company.

    Kez, jobs dont just fall into the lap, as a 40+ yr old i have seen the problems with this country and its past Government. I cannot get a job either despite being a fully qualified Civil Engineer and CCTV operator. I’ve mentioned it time and again that training courses are going to do little for the youth of this country, In the mean-time; The armed Forces are short, the government cannot afford the equipment or training to even look after these Islands. Now, if the opportunity was there where 18-21 year olds were given the ultimatem of joining one of the armed services for say 3 years as conscript/national service, it would give them a sense of belonging, instill discipline and would ease Employment. the ultimatem would be serve or have no money.
