I am one of the decreasing number who did National Service at a time 10 years after ww2 when, after the initial post war recovery the economy was struggling
It was an excellent experience for me The discipline and the training and the opportunity post school to be employed in a completely different environment was seminal.
I would never want military service to come back but a peaceful Youth Corps would be a wonderful benefit to generation C
Seminal

Sounds like a great idea at any time (bound to help with social mobility to give a leg up to young people) , but particularly with the challenges we are facing with the economy due to covid.

The government should be creating jobs for all unemployed citizens, not just young people. Benefits are not enough; people need jobs.

Our youth is our future. Neglecting their needs in crisis means neglecting those who have the most energy and flexibility to build a positive change for all of us.

It's essential to tackle potential mass unemployment esp for the younger, and the idea is very good- similar but different from mine of advocating conscription into a Community Force for essential care and green production work, agriculture etc, simultaneously with the introduction of a Universal Basic Income, topped up by other personal employment and in the case of conscripts by the Community Force employer to Living Wage of £400 pw. Am urging influencers to push for this.
