No jobs, just work experience. How unemployment is destroying hope | World news | The Guardian

unemployed for two years, the budding film editor has so little money he cannot afford a trip to the cinema.

Struggling to pay his €360 (£245) monthly rent, the 24-year-old cannot afford to go out, eat in restaurants, travel or take the train. He and his jobless graduate friends bear a new stigma: they are “Generation S”, or generation stagiaire, the work experience generation – well-qualified but desperate, who find themselves forced to perform internships into their 30s because jobs are scarce and they’d rather “keep active” to avoid the shame.
