▶ BBC Documentary: Who Gets the Best Jobs? - YouTube
http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/b00yb5kv Internships (Work Experience) = Working for free can not many afford, the least can afford it. Internship gets u access to 'high barrier to entry' jobs that run a country, economy, the upper echelons of the economy. Add student loan + living expenses to get a compatible & competitive degree, which not everyone can afford. It's barrier after barrier. Add 'people you know', family connections as another barrier. Hourglass society; those have a education qualification (academic route) and those who have a vocational education (ie apprentice ship). 80's was the fork in the road (de-industrialization period of UK / start of globalization). In the UK ur earning power is determined 50% by what family you were born into (start in life) & the other by your work effort. Fairness & Aspiration go together. Scandinavia much better. http://gu.com/p/3jj7n http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Alan_Milburn
