24-year old Aduke has a masters degree in international studies. She graduated two years ago and has applied for more than 150 jobs, with barely a reply. She says, “For friends, a little thing comes up, and that gives you hope, but so far hope hasn’t happened for me.” She works in an arthouse cinema, earning £7.20 an hour. Her take-home pay is under £1,000 per month and rent is £650. She says, “I walk to work and I have an overdraft of £2,000. The people in the job are lovely, but it’s soul-destroying. My mum understands but, as she sees it, I’m not trying hard enough. It doesn’t feel that way to me.”
