Red Pepper magazine published the article below on the success of the campaign against workfare.

 

The government’s workfare scheme was designed to help individuals back to work by giving unemployed people unpaid work experience. Opponents of the scheme however, compared it to slave labour and named companies such as Asda, Argos and Superdrug accusing them of using workfare participants to replace paid employees.

 

The illustration shows workers breaking free from the scheme, which in some cases was forced upon jobseekers.
