Milton Keynes: “The public response was really positive, which highlights the governments ignorance to public opinion about these workfare schemes. We had McDonalds staff on our side as they are concerned about losing their jobs to unpaid staff. Great protest!”
Southampton: “About 20 people attended and we had a lively protest outside Primark with placards and leaflets and plenty of noise on the megaphone. We moved on to Topshop. Here the manager came out and showed us a document saying they had withdrawn from the scheme. We told him that we would give him the benefit of the doubt but that we could come back. What it does show is that the protests are effective and stores are actually worried about the impact on their sales.”
