Beggars Can't Be Chosers

Posted on the 30 November 2011 by Humanwriter @roseforman
I now know why my ears have been burning recently, someone was reading my thoughts and writing them on the Guardian website.... see here. Very decent article expressing my exact thoughts and torments!I whole heartedly agree that by not paying interns in top workplaces (such as Government) effectively rules out the working class for such jobs. I Cannot afford to go to London for a minimum of 3 months (Or Any amount of time!) and live for free, I can barely afford to live off the wage I am being paid to work in a warehouse. And No, Mummy and Daddy can't afford to pay for me either. I have reached that inevitable Catch-22 start to my career, in that everyone wants me to have experience yet no one is willing to give me any!... P.S. Don't even get me started on the pensions strikes today. I have a long rant which goes along the lines of: "I'll take their job and be happy with whatever pay/pension/benefits I can get."
