Co-ops and youth unemployment

Thanks to Phil McCash for passing me this piece.

Channel 4 news: Can the young find jobs?

It talks about the situation for young workers and includes an interview with Rhiannon Colvin from Altgen an organisation that works with young people to help them set up co-ops.

Rhiannon argues that young people should stop fighting each other for poor quality work and start to set up co-ops.

I think that this is all very exciting and it links to a lot of the stuff that I’ve been thinking about in relation to guidance and critical pedagogy. Perhaps we need to stop looking for individual solutions and start looking for collective solutions as part of career guidance.
