We don't find jobs after finishing our apprenticeship or studies in many fields like hospitality, tourism, retail. Even if there are jobs, we are competing with adults with extensive professional experience.
Finding apprenticeships is also a challenge for us. There is a shortage of up to 20,000 apprenticeships and the consequences will be felt for long time. Besides, how are we supposed to learn anything if we are on a furlough scheme? We want to work. We want our dignity back!
