Badge Friday: Cut Hours Not Jobs
Speaking personally, I was on a Youth Training Scheme training up for a career I wouldn't be able to pursue because there was no future for it.
However, that was the story for many 16-year-old's as trying to find work was a pretty hopeless scenario at that time and the British Government seemed quite happy to mask high unemployment figures with such schemes.
However, this badge is a nice little time-piece, which to a degree could still be applied in some quarters today.
