Bristol Argos and Workfare

English: Argos Extra store, Rushmere Shopping ...Image via Wikipedia






"A claimant in Bristol told Corporate Watch how paid Christmas work in the Argos store in the Galleries shopping centre disappeared when the company realised it could get people in for nothing on workfare placements. 'Jason', who wishes to remain anonymous, said Seetec, the 'provider' company that he was sent to by the Jobcentre, had arranged an interview for him and 13 others for temporary work. They were not hired because the store instead took people on unpaid placements organised by Prospect, another employment provider company, which ironically has its Bristol office in the same building as Seetec."
