Campaign Update: Continued Success for #WorkMustPay

The Flame By Unite Youth Dublin

Work Must Pay Unite Youth Dublin Activist Group (UY-DAG) continues to take part in anti-JobBridge actions under the banner of the #WorkMustPay Campaign to directly challenge the acceptability of employers taking on unpaid interns instead of providing even the basic respect of a minimum wage for workers. These actions are a joint effort on the part of the Connolly Youth Movement, Sinn Féin Republican Youth and UY-DAG.

Another Internship Eliminated

#WorkMustPay activists secured another victory today when a well-known cafe on Camden Street provided us with written assurance that they would take down their current JobBridge advert and advertise no further positions in the future. This occurred after an advance warning and picket notice had been provided, along with lengthy correspondence with the employer. This proves the effectiveness of our tactics in eliminating JobBridge positions and we will be monitoring future city centre postings to ensure this is not a temporary victory.
