A DONCASTER man who got a part-time job in a garage through his father’s friend has been labelled a ‘nepo baby’.
18-year-old Jack Browne will soon begin work as a trainee mechanic after father Bill persuaded his mate Kevin to offer Jack the position.
Local man Wayne Hayes said: “It’s sickening to witness people using family connections and the structures of hereditary privilege to climb the greasy pole in what should be an egalitarian meritocracy. This is just like when Roy gave his daughter Kelly a job in the chippie on the corner without advertising the post.
“Every time I take my car in that garage and see Jack changing my tyres, it’ll be like being slapped in the face by the forces of influence and favouritism.
“Think of all the hard-working jobseekers who have lost out, thanks to the years Bill has spent currying favour with the lads on the pub darts team, always with one eye on the wealth and success it could provide for his offspring. It’s disgusting.”
Jack Browne said: “Being a nepo baby is actually a disadvantage and means I have to work twice as hard to prove I’m not here through my family connections alone. Anyway, I’d rather work for Tesla but my dad hasn’t got quite the same sway with Elon Musk.”
