Apprentices left in limbo by FAS

I have just finished reading Anita Guidera's article about the six lads from Donegal who left Ireland for Australia last week in search of better prospects. I can relate wholeheartedly with their plight.
Next week my 23-year-old cousin is leaving Ireland and at the end of the month his brother, who is my age (22), will leave for Australia.
I would follow in their footsteps but I have one small thing holding me back -- I'm an apprentice.
