Jobseekers told: volunteer at Poundland or lose your benefits

Poundland is now denying that it uses volunteers to stack shelves in its shops, but claim that it does take people on “unpaid mandatory work experience placements”.





The fucking doublespeak is actually more annoying than the original exploitation. Well, not really, but you know what I mean.

A zero pay contract at a commercial business.

Volunteers for charity or social causes is one thing. Subsidising business is quite another.

Funny, I always thought 'Poundland' would be a great name for a Soho cinema.

Meh. What about the people who don't even go to the bother of getting hold of a fake badge, and just park their cars in disabled spaces? Don't know about the UK, but it's fucking rife over here. All sorts doing it too, not just your shaven-headed attack-dog owners.
