“went round Southampton looking for a job – no luck”
1975 saw UK inflation running at a staggering 24.2%, the cost of petrol had risen an astonishing 70% since the start of the year, and interest rates were at a mind-boggling 11.25%
Unemployment was also at its highest levels since the 1930’s, topping the one million mark.
No wonder there were no part-time, even mere Saturday, jobs to be had!?!
