1. Boycott Workfare: Workfare’s Christmas Bonus For The Bosses


    from Smash TV Added 130 0 0

    Video from Indymedia Brum. Saturday 8th December marked the start of a week of action against workfare and shops that profit from the free labour supplied by the taxpayer. In Birmingham anti-workfare protesters gathered outside Poundland, a local company using workfare. As the protest began to grow the group decided to move off in search of other shops using workfare. They didn't have to walk far when round the corner they arrived at Argos, a particularly unpopular shop amongst Birmingham Workfare activists. In Birmingham last year, Boycott Workfare was told by someone who applied for a temp job at Argos, but didn’t get it and then subsequently got sent there on workfare that they had more people on workfare than paid temps. In light of this the group made the decision to occupy the shop and managed to handout over a thousand leaflets. After Argos the next stop on the Workfare tour was Superdrug where flyers were handed out before moving on to the last stop on the tour McDonald’s. Here the protesters were joined by Birmingham Food not Bombs activists who set up a stall outside McDonald’s and began handing out free vegan burgers.
