Stop Workfare in Hackney! Demonstrate March 17th

March 15, 2012

Saturday March 17 – 12:00pm until 1:00pm

Hackney, Narrow Way by St. Augustine’s Tower

We will be highlighting shops/companies/empoyers in Hackney who employ people for no wages  in Hackney, Tesco, Boots, McDonalds, Hackney Community College, London Fields Primary School, and many more.

Already the campaign is working, with TESCOs on the defensive and TK Maxx, Sainsbury’s, Scope, Waterstones, Shelter Marie Curie, 99p stores and CAAT have pulled out.

Keep up the pressure.

When opeds in the Daily Mail refering to Workfare as, Nazi attacks on the vulnerable, you know you are onto something.

Boycott Workfare is a UK-wide campaign to end forced unpaid work for people who receive welfare. Workfare profits the rich by providing free labour, whilst threatening the poor by taking away welfare rights if people refuse to work without a living wage. We expose and take action against companies and organisations profiting from workfare; encourage organisations to pledge to boycott it; and actively inform people of their rights.
