Well, maybe in unskilled jobs such as shelf-stacking and mopping floors, Brits might be reluctant to do them for the measly pay, but many still do.
Students and the "fresh out of school" seem to staff most of the 24hr shops graveyard shifts round these parts.
You shouldn't blanket everyone with the same brush, just based on your own experiences, it entirely depends on the are you live in, the population
I've found in my own experience that the kids from middle-class families seem to be pushed into taking any available work by their parents than those
whose parents, shall we say, might be a little more workshy.
I know my father made me get a job the moment it was legal for me to do so, same with my friends at school, who all came from middle class
Those kids whom we knew from the council estate round the corner not only failed at school because they knew that the state would care for them
(becuase they see their parents doing whatever they like, not having a job etc), but even now, 10 years after leaving school, can be seen hanging
around street corners without a job causing trouble. Ironically, this is all right across the road from a Sainsbury's which is recruiting.
They just don't want to work becuase the System gives them everything and their parents have told them how to use the system, being players
However, I am a strong believer that if someone is on long-term Jobseekers (say more than 6 months) they should be forced to take any available job or
face losing all benefits.
