Workfare Shutdown on October 20th

From  Boycott Workfare

Meet at 2.30pm at Oxford Circus, 20/10/202

Join the facebook event and invite your friends.

The fight back against workfare continues on Oct 20th when tens of thousands are expected to march on London against austerity. As people march for a future that works, Boycott Workfare will be taking action for a future without forced unpaid labour.

The growing resistance against exploitative government work schemes is rattling the arrogance of workfare’s architects and profiteers. Retailers have withdrawn from workfare due to pressure from campaigners; warnings of “imminent contract failures” are being made by Work Programme charities. Neither Workfare nor the Work Programme is working.

Any of us could be subjected to forced unpaid work through the government’s back to work schemes, so it’s in the interest of all of us that we fight back. At the end of the day, workfare is an attack on the work and welfare of the unemployed and employed. It not only provides a source of cheap labour to profit-making companies but it also undermines the pay and conditions of those already in paid work.

Join Boycott Workfare in London on Oct 20th and let’s shut down the profiteers exploiting the unemployed.

Please share, tweet, spread the word.

A radical workers feeder march will be assembling at 10.30am on the day of the TUC March to leave from South London – Meet at Mary Geraldine Harmsworth Park, more details at: http://www.facebook.com/events/445666412138079/
