Campaign: To encourage employers to offer more full-time opportunities

I know how difficult it can be for young people to find full-time work and I’m tired of hearing others say we’re lazy and not interested in our futures.


One of the things that is making it hard for those my age, is the prevalence of zero and low-hour employment contracts.


Not being guaranteed sufficient hours means no steady income, and this can hinder young people looking to do things like move out or learn to drive.


With Fixers, I want to encourage employers to offer more full-time opportunities.

Hopefully, young people will then be given a better chance to move forward in life.
