Young lawyers

Two ladies in my swimming club who have been working as lawyers for years have set up shop on their own.
In Italy it is usance to have young people working for you to let them gain work experience. They are a source of cheap labour since in most cases they work for very low pay. And even after gaining experience it is by no means certain that your pay will rise.
This work relation mirrors Italian society. Hierarchy is still very important here and a position with status will be exploited to the fullest.
I hope these girls are a sign of the future. Question is whether the existing bulwarks will leave them some space, I really wish them all the best and hope they succeed.
