Most young people cannotafford to take up an unpaid internship in London because of the high cost ofliving in the capital, according to new research by the TUC.
A survey of over1,000 people aged between 18 and 34 found that only one in ten would consider an internship in London.
The TUC says that the costs of an unpaid internship, especially in the capital, prevent young people from poorer backgrounds getting the best jobs, and makes internships no more than 'finishing schools for the middle classes'.
