Thank you Inda for killing off what remained of the jobs market by bringing in the internship program. It is being used by every business under the sun to take on people at virtually no cost and then dump them 6 months later. I was on the Fas website today, and now you can get a internship as a Sales assistant in a Garden center, in a leading Irish Supermarket and a toy shop!! I work in the retail industry and to be honest my training consisted of a few days of following a co-worker around. 6 months of an internship in any of these jobs is ludicrous and in reality is an easy way for businesses to take on workers at no cost while cutting back the hours of "Paid" employee's. Sure it will be get people back in a working environment but at the expense of the people on the breadline in minimum wage jobs. Bertie, Biffo and Inda, the 3 eejits of the apocalypse.
