Bye Bye Jobbridge exploitation – #WorkMustPay at it again!!

#WorkMustPay activists had a picket planned the past week outside Pacinos restaurant on Suffolk Street, Dublin 2. Having contacted the restaurant requesting them to remove their Jobbridge ad, we got a response indicating that they would agree to take it down. We then followed up with an email looking for written clarification and indeed a representative from Pacinos replied to WMP indicating that the ad was taken down. #WorkMustPay can confirm that it has been removed from the Jobbridge website.

We encourage all those who oppose Jobbridge to get out on the pickets and demand that businesses do not exploit workers, paying under 25’s a measly €3.75 an hour, as every worker deserves a living wage. In fact it may even cost a person more to take up an internship under Jobbridge. You find a few pointers on getting started here or in the “How To Help” section on the menu bar.

The #WorkMustPay campaign is holding an informal demonstration outside the Department of Jobs on March 13th at 5pm. Find the event page here – and we are looking for people and groups to come out and support our campaign for the elimination of Jobbridge and any other free-labour schemes. Your voice will count and businesses will listen, as our campaign has on numerous occasions demonstrated. So as always if you are interested please email
