    Across Britain there are nearly one million unemployed young people. For these youth, finding a job is not merely about income, but also a matter of character.

    Due to a law aimed at people perceived to be lazy, many of these young people will be forced to work for free. Lacking the money to go to university and the jobs with which to build a CV these young Brits feel at a loss.

    Al Jazeera's Laurence Lee reports from the city of Leeds.
