Those in early graduate roles find they have to 'tread through mud'

Those in graduate roles - and younger workers generally - often find themselves "having to tread through mud" in the early stages of their career, according to Right Corecare.

Kevin Friery, clinical director at the service, said that under-30s often find life challenging - in part because they are required by necessity to work a job they dislike.

"The trouble that people in that age group have to cope with is that they may be working in a situation that isn't their ideal jobs, isn't the best job in the world, but is a job they have to do to get themselves going or get a foot on the ladder," he explained.

"As you get older, you are more likely to be doing something that you want to be doing, but when you're younger you're sort of doing the things you need to do."

According to research by the Institute for Employment Studies and Newsbeat, under-30s saw real wages fall faster in recent months than any other age group.
