04 July 2016

'I don't think young people are lazy,' says Tarnya. 'We just don't really know where to put our foot in the door.'


Tarnya, 20, appeared on ABC's current affairs program Four Corners on July 4 2016. The program asked a simple question: Are we preparing our children and young people for the workplace of the future? Watch our video to get another take on Tarnya's story.
