Forbidden London leader James WJ Wilson was jubilant on announcing his organisation's expansion:
"It's been a bad few weeks for London and we are delighted to be delivering some good news for young people in London.
"We have up to 1,000 vacancies we wish to fill by December, with bright, enthusiastic people eager to play a part in delivering the best events and nightlife to Londoners, and visitors to London, as possible.
"The West End has taken a hit over the past few years, like the rest of the world. We're going to try and put the sparkle back and we've got more faith in young people than anyone, they didn't get us in to this mess.
"We see the reality and the opening, where politicians seemingly do not; times are tough for many talented young people – particularly young women – and so we feel it is important to lead and do our best to provide chances and choices where we can, at a time when few people outside the elite can afford to try and be leaders in our society.
"The introduction of the smoking ban in nightlife venues has done untold damage to the industry and that in term has had a big social cost. This has been compounded by the large supermarkets, and their retail equivalents, stranglehold on the high street that has led to less variety of work being available for semi-skilled and unskilled labour.
"Obviously the appalling behaviour of those trusted to keep the economy in peak condition and school the young has been the most significant factor."
Tesco is currently the countries largest employer with more than 250,000 employees although the company has been criticised in the past for creaming record profits off the back of employees working at the minimum wage.
Forbidden London is a minnow in comparison, generating a turnover of less than £250,000 in its first year of trading but it can still intend to recruit on a massive scale when much larger companies are culling staff at a time that is largely agreed to be a point of potential collapse in the world's economic systems.
"We want to offer thousands of people an alternative to stacking shelves or scraping by without the things they are told they should have by the media every moment of every day. I can tell them we promise that as we grow they will too. We're basing our business plan on the theoretical physics of networks which is unusual but with more mainstream thinking seemingly flawed, if you feel like I feel why not?
"I don't know if we can do this; we are currently a small organisation, but we're all committed to making a difference for as many people as we can by offering them a chance to taste a new future, earn some money and be part of something new and completely different.
"With a little luck, with a little investment, maybe we'll have 300,000 employees in a few years, maybe 3 million. David Cameron keeps banging on about entrepreneurship in between spates of demonising the youths. We're going to teach thousands of young people how to make money without large corporations; perhaps that will be scarier than gangs."
