I am not doing that - let 'them' do it.

There is now often a mismatch between the high expectations that many young people acquire before they leave school and the grim reality of the bottom part of the labour market hourglass: about 80 per cent of the new jobs created over the past three years are paying below £8 an hour in the UK. 

This helps to explain both the fact that about 20 per cent of 16 to 24 year olds are unemployed and that about 20 per cent of low skilled jobs are taken by people born outside the country

With the stress in mainstream culture on aspiration and success, the basic jobs that we still desperately need to fill—cleaning, working in supermarkets, caring for the elderly—are seen by too many people as only for ‘failures and foreigners.’
