Following on from anti-workfare pickets in Lincoln called by Youth Fight For Jobs and Lincoln Underground Collective (LUC) on 3rd March and 31st March respectively, LUC is calling for further action on Saturday 19th May.
Although providers are pulling out of the schemes and some benefit sanctions have been dropped (for now), there is still a lot more work to be done. Every day, unemployed people are being forced into unpaid work on one of the government’s five workfare schemes. As well as the fact that this effectively amounts to using the unemployed as slave labour, it also threatens the job security of the paid staff in these workplaces.
Join us in taking direct action against those companies who are signed up to these exploitative schemes. Bring flags, banners, placards and leaflets and let’s show workfare providers that we won’t sit back and let them exploit workers (employed and unemployed) for their own selfish interests. If they exploit us, we will shut them down!
Assemble at 11am at the Angel Coffee Shop (Free school lane) before we move off to our first target.
