According to a state-of-the-nation report in Britain, the British youth are the ones who are hit with the greatest income drop and employment in recent years. The Equality and Human Rights Commission (EHRC) said the youth’s economic independence and success are barred with more obstacles when compared with other age groups.

Aside from young people born into poverty, the UK’s ethnic and socio-economic groups are falling fast.

According to EHRC Commissioner Laura Carstensen:

“While we have made important progress in many areas – and it is important to note and celebrate this – the gateways to opportunity that the Commission identified five years ago remain harder to pass through for some groups such as disabled people, those from poorer backgrounds and women over a certain age.

“It’s great to see the barriers being lowered over the last five years for some people: but during the same period they’ve been raised higher for younger people in particular. Theirs are the shoulders on which the country will rely to provide for a rapidly ageing population, yet they have the worst economic prospects for several generations.”

More Tolerant With Orientation, Inequality Present On Paper

The report indicates that the British have become tolerant with different sexual orientations in all age groups. However, inequality is still present in the workplace, particularly in pay.

People under 34 years old had suffered an average pay shrink down to £6.70 an hour. Men are still twice likely to be a manager, director or a senior official in a company compared to women.

Black people’s pay declined at almost £1.20 an hour. Sikhs now had an hourly pay of £1.90.

Greece just came out of the Eurozone deal with bloodied bodies and injured spirits. Showing their defiance by re-electing Alexis Tsipras, the urge to resolve their debts still exists. Unfortunately, Greece needs new fuel to fire up the innovation in the economy and market.

Many start-ups in Greece had failed to captivate the public. Fortunately, international companies are willing to extend their trades to help up Europe’s weakened but fighting link.

CleanHands

CleanHands is a non-profit organisation focusing on unused soap bars and other hotel toiletries. The organisation collects them. Upon gathering the materials, they convert these into low-cost, eco-friendly hygienic and household-cleaning products.

Greece’s tourism industry may benefit from the start-up purchasing unused hygienic products common in most hotels and bed-and-breakfast venues. They may re-sell the products at a lower price to other parts in the industry or even normal households

Mastiha World

The Chios Mastiha Tree is common in Greece. As a local and export-quality inebriation, Mastiha World intends to focus their efforts to distribute the product to Greece’s local mass market. Mastiha is expensive. However, the start-up intends to make the product accessible to common and lower prices.

MetaLearner

The freedom to manage your time in learning despite joining a for-profit university brings great knowledge at possibly no expense (unless you need a certification). MetaLearner intends to help people manage their own education with free and paid online courses.

People also have an option to take actual real-world courses but without the benefit of a classroom. The start-up primarily depends on rented spaces to render educational services.
