    What exactly is meant by work experience? While I agree that employability may eventually raise income and self-esteem, a reliance on 'work experience' will encourage many employers to continue to offer low-wage employment under the guise of 'work experience'. Otherwise, where these experience vacancies come from? Jobs need to be created and/or attracted to Scotland.
