Re: Wee Bang Theory
My IT technician was an IT apprentice.
However, we had an unofficial deal - he would work for a year as an apprentice, then I would personally make sure his salary the year after reflected the sacrifice made on his apprenticeship minimum wage for that time.
It was literally that ridiculous that it may as well have been unpaid. There's no way that most apprentice-age people can survive that without mummy or daddy covering the cost of their living for the entire apprenticeship. Which kills the point of the apprenticeship as those kinds could just go to university or something anyway.
