Take action against companies profiting from workfare!

1pm, Wed 19th October 2011 outside the annual Welfare to Work Conference at the Business Design Centre, Upper Street, Islington, N1 0HQ

This year’s Welfare to Work Conference will bring together politicians and private companies making millions from the welfare to work industry. The agenda reads like a who’s who of welfare abolition.

We’re not fooled by “Welfare to Work”: It means people forced to do unpaid work for multi-million pound companies such as Asda and Poundland. People risk losing the meagre £67 a week Jobseeker’s Allowance if they do not work for such companies without pay.

Conference speakers will include James Purnell, who introduced the idea of workfare under Labour, and the Tory peer Lord Freud, multi millionaire ex-banker and self styled ‘welfare expert’. This is a convention for those promoting the idea of an unpaid workforce, whilst making millions from it.

Join us as we make sure the conference doesn’t go as smoothly as planned!
