AN entitled young person has self-indulgently turned down a fantastic career opportunity of long-term unpaid work.
Snowflake mathematics graduate Nathan Muir, 23, rejected the unpaid internship at a marketing company on the dubious grounds that he wanted to avoid becoming homeless or starving to death.
Managing director Donna Sheridan said: “Nathan has missed out on a once-in-a-lifetime chance to work a 48-hour week doing shit no one else can be arsed to do.
“He needs to realise he can’t get a highly paid job with no experience. If he got his foot on the career ladder by working here for, say, 15 years, then we could think about a generous salary of 17k.
“Millennials want it all handed to them on a plate. A plate full of avocados. Hard graft is what gets you on in life, not being a vegan and daydreaming about being on reality TV.
“Those aren’t things I actually learned about Nathan during his interview, I got it from an opinion piece in the Telegraph.”
Muir said: “Actually they can stuff their job because I’ve been offered a better one. There still isn’t a salary but you’re allowed to subsist on leftover sandwiches from meetings.”
