I just so happened to be trawling around Hull, shopping for a few bits of smart attire for my briefing date which is upcoming - the usual brogues, shirts etc. I was soon to come upon a somewhat rabble dash conglomeration of Hull's finest protesters outside of McDonald's. I have been quite intrigued by this topic and also felt that my debating skills could use a little work - also seeing as of the manner he thrust the leaflet in my path leaving me no option but to engage led to me having a polite conversation with the group. My view on the situation is that a lot of these youth are currently complaining that they have no job at present and that this work experience scheme in which they do not get paid is "slave labour" and are demanding for the usual pay as though they were a full employee. I aired my opinion to the group in that the individuals are being given a good opportunity, although lacking in monetary opportunity, there is still invaluable work experience to be had and I had also read that McDonald's give an NVQ qualification to their work experience folk. I also asked them as to what is the better situation, either the individuals sit at home doing nothing and claim off the state and spend the rest of their time protesting out on the street that it is "unfair" or simply crack on at the opportunity, gain work experience and increase the chances of getting paid employment and potentially a qualification. Alas, I was met with silence and they all retorted to their "slave labour" propaganda. How do all of you feel about the situation? As mentioned, I see it as a great opportunity for individuals in the situation that if I were in the position would grab with both hands! Discuss.
