Did anyone mention the "work trial" thing?
I know it's not legislation, but it probably will soon be, so bear with me. And it will not interfere with the financially comfortable with cosseted whelps, but it may well do in time.
Instead of interviews for low paying insecure jobs, we now have "work trials."
Ok, I can understand an employer wanting to try out a potential employee for a few hours, or a day even...but did you know that many british citizens now are required to work for at least a week without pay in order to "apply" for a shelf stacking job?
OK, you get your JSA, but in reality that's a week stacking shelves for £64 a week. And only one in ten of you will get that three month variable location "be prepared to travel 1.5 hours either way" shelf stacking position afterwards. So much for minimum wage. So much for a first world nation.
That's something that annoys me.
