Poundland boss on young people's working skills
11 July 2012 Last updated at 11:20 BST
The chairman of the Poundland chain of shops claimed some young people lack the "basic but crucial life skills" for work, and business leaders must play their part in helping them.
Colin Smith has become "increasingly disappointed" at the inability of young people to work together or turn up on time.
He is also chairman of The Challenge Network, working with 15 and 16-year-olds, helping then learn teamwork, leadership and confidence skills.
Mr Smith will debate his film with MPs Mark Harper and Tessa Jowell on BBC2's Daily Politics about 1240 BST on Wednesday.
