Nottingham says no to workfare

Nottingham Youth Fight For Jobs protested along side Notts Uncut on Saturday against the Workfare Scheme still being used by main high street shops.

Nottingham Youth Fight For Jobs protested along side Notts Uncut on Saturday against the Workfare Scheme still being used by main high street shops. It received brilliant news coverage and a good turn out. People were desperate for leaflets and to join in the chanting outside Wilkinson's, Gregg's, McDonald's and Primark. Many also came to tell personal stories of their experiences being forced to work for free through the scheme and highlighted their continued unemployment as proof that the placements did nothing but help big businesses keep their profits by forcing people to work for free.
