Apprentices: Council squirms

Having been caught redhanded and having received some very unwelcome publicity, the Council has issued an anodyne statement claiming that apprentices will only be used for "junior roles" - whatever that means.

The fact remains that their own written proposals for the Finance Department clearly show that they are deleting jobs and proposing to get apprentices to take over the work. Those are job opportunities which are being denied to the people of Brighton and Hove, and it is crass hypocrisy for the council to be claiming to be creating apprenticeships on the one hand whilst destroying jobs on the other.
