Foil Arms and Hog suggest a plumber work for the 'exposure'

If you graduated from work anytime after the economic crash, you’re probably all-too familiar with the world of unpaid work.

The idea of going straight from college to paid employment now seems a laughably quaint idea, with new graduates instead expected to work for free to gain experience.

From internships to one-off jobs done purely for the “exposure”, the Irish comedians perfectly satirise the phrases many young people are familiar with hearing from prospective employers.

If you want to see more of Foil Arms and Hog's excellent work, they are about to embark on a nationwide tour.
