“Give young people a bigger benefit payment – to pay for travel and lunch – if they can find themselves an internship with a business that needs staff but doesn’t have the profits to take them on, and second the staff presently working on those other programmes to administer such deals. That way, young people will at least be gaining experience instead of feeling depressed.” Deborah Orr in the Guardian.
