Mansfield says no to Workfare

Mansfield YFJ members got a great reception leafletting and petitioning outside Mcdonalds, British Home Stores and Dorothy Perkins.

Mansfield YFJ members got a great reception leafletting and petitioning outside Mcdonalds, British Home Stores and Dorothy Perkins. We were calling for all companies to pull out of the slave labour schemes and for the government to create real jobs.

When two police constables approached us and asked if we had permission to use the megaphone, we explained what we were doing. We also said we opposed privatisation in Lincolnshire police and other forces, and had visited the picket line during last year's strike against cuts and redundancies by Nottinghamshire Police Unison members. They wished us good luck and left it at that.
