17-year old Angela left secondary school two years ago, wanting to become a plumber. She has been sending out dozens of job applications each week, without yet being invited to an interview. Unable to get on a vocational course or apprenticeship, she drifted aimlessly, until her mother threw her out. Angela says, “Mum told me to leave. She said, ‘Get yourself a job and get on with your life.’ But you cannot get a job without experience, and you cannot get experience without a job.”
