I'm still young...I hope...24's still young, right...guys? To be honest not being able to drive doesn't seriously disable me in the job market. I mean certainly there are jobs which I can't do (many warehouse related things, delivery, pizza companies, a few others) - but mostly it's not a problem. I can't say that not learning to drive yet has been a choice as such, rather just a consequence of never really having half a grand lying around to be spent on driving lessons. Well, they manage to make it work in the UK don't they? My summer job's in catering, and there's loads of Poles in this industry, but there's a limit to how low that rate can legally go and that's minimum wage. If you're out of work and objecting to the idea of a job because it pays minimum wage then your priorities aren't really right, are they? In terms of longer hours, again, if you're out a job, surely being paid for more work is good? Personally I'm taking pretty much everything and anything my job'll throw at me right now because I was unemployed for a month and need to catch up on the money. I really dislike this thing of blaming EU workers for there being no jobs or only rubbish jobs for brits. If you want a job then take a job a Pole would have taken. If you think you're disadvantaged compared to them then you're nuts - I've worked with people whose English is awful, and they're still working for the company. You know why? Because they work hard, they work for 8 or 9 hour days 5 days a week, and they don't complain about having to do so.
