My nephew William visited today. He’s 23 and recently finished college and is looking for work. The problem is that he has both physical and and learning impairments that really hinder his chances in the labour market because they limit his work options.
The State seems uninterested in people like William once they reach adulthood. No choice appears and he has to find his own way. His dad did get him a short term placement at Biggin Hill airport but sadly that now has ended and Will finds himself at a loose end. He wants to work and there are lots of jobs he is perfectly suited to do. Still he likes photography so we mucked around making some images today.
