    Default The ‘workshy’ face a wage of ‘JSA + Expenses’ (Every Little helps)

    Yes indeed, every little helps towards the relentless march towards a fascist Zionist state where slavery is the norm. A certain well-known supermarket that likes to censor Internet discussions tells us it is all a big mistake, and yet if you read the comments from normal people you would find out that there is no mistake.

    Yes, brought to you by the company that bypasses the UK labour force and advertises directly for employees in Poland without advertising the same job here, at all. The same company (and this is from a discussion with an HGV delivery driver for Tesco) that moved it's depot from South Wales to Bristol and tries to employ as many Polish people as possible in the warehouse rather than British people.

    Great one from the comments section.

    Tescos have tried to set up shop in my town. The first time they tried it ended in the government commissioning a special planning investigation. This was central government and one of only a few hundred per year. I don't know what they were investigating, but Tescos suddenly withdrew their application in a hurry. Now having bribed the council to fund 'yoof workers' that teach the kids graffiti, the council decided to allow it. Just as they did so Tescos decided to rescind their offer of council funding and have since made the council absolutely furious with them. However, the tale doesn't stop there. A friend of a friend has decided to squat the very building Tescos have purchased that is due to be knocked down so they can build the new Tescos. This squatter is as far as I can tell very clued up on the laws to do with squatting, which means if he is kicked out or Tescos even enters their building he can phone the police and have them arrested! It seems petitions are one thing, council promises are the same thing, but what this guy has actually done is working. He's holding up the development of a 40 000sq ft slave business, and he is a local hero.

    Tescos have demanded changes and other retailers have now pulled out of this slave labour scheme in the face of so much adverse publicity. Which goes to show what the public can do just with Twitter and Facebook. We need more protests like this to get things changed.

    Yes there was something in Radio 4 a moment ago. One of Tescos slave driver sweatshops was closed down today because there were large protests outside of it, and now Tescos has had to make statements to the media denying what they were doing. They are demanding that the government make it clear that it is voluntary, even though once on the scheme it becomes compulsory after a week because if you leave then you are not paid any money by the dole, and humans need money in order to survive. So every little lie helps to keep the masses of people from boycotting their businesses.

    Minimum wage is a pittance. You'd think that a company like Tescos who made almost £4 billion profit last year, could afford to pay all work placement people the minimum wage. That would be a treat for them, imagine get a proper week's wages for two months. That would sort the wheat from the chaff. Those who really wanted a job and those that prefer to be on the dole.

    I doubt that they'd want to take on so many job seekers then.

    Also, not forgetting Roady, that as previously discussed (by sensible members of the forum), that there's a significant on-cost to the taxpayer of all this minimum wage nonsense. Even The Guardian don't like it.

    And it's not just here; the US govt. did the same with Wal-Mart (who own Asda). An absolutely shabby project by an archetypal Tory toff government.

    Don't talk to me about WalMart, they make Tesco look like amateurs. The trouble is (and this comes from a capitalist), that it's only going to get worse. With the power of corporations and globalism, we are entering a new period of feudalism. We are about to see an accelerated gap between the rich and the poor. Except this time it is also going to be between the middle classes and the rich. Everyone but the very rich is about to get much poorer. Dystopian it certainly is.

    A good film about it is: Capitalism: A Love Story by Michael Moore (yes, he can be an annoying Lefty, but this film is good).

    It is interesting, where he shows back in the '60s & '70s how his working class father did well. That is capitalism, when we all did well, when property ownership took off, where decent company pensions came in, decent holidays and a good pay packet. We all prospered, from top right down to the very bottom. That was national capitalism. We now have global corporatism, where only the very rich prosper and there is no trickle down of the wealth and despite companies still making huge profits, pensions have all but disappeared.

    It's a small screen, but it's free and well worth a watch.
