Bristol Solidarity Federation continue to take their opposition against workfare scheme, to the stores that that benefit from unpaid labour.
What is Workfare? It is a goverment scheme, were unemployed people are forced to work for free for up to six months, with no guarantee of a job at afterwards, many of them work for high street companies. Workfare means forced labour: 3 out of 5 schemes are mandatory; people are often pressurised into the two 'voluntary' schemes or if they refuse to participate, are put on a mandatory scheme. All schemes use sanctions - they can lead to the removal of vital benefits,
The state and businesses are colluding to undermine all our working conditions.
We say: END UNPAID WORK.
