The problems faced by Elizabeth youth go far beyond the Holden Plant lay-offs. Elizabeth was supposed to be an experimental Britain in Australia and it has become exactly that. Like in Britain, great numbers of the people look towards the Government to support them from the cradle to the grave.
As far as their youth is concerned, there are buses leaving for the City and suburbs every 15 minutes and jobs lie at the other end of the ride. Believe it or not, there are Doctors, Lawyers and all manner of professional people from Elizabeth working all over the area.
