Jobbridge 2: Electric Boogaloo


This afternoon.

South William Street, Dublin 2.

Paul Murphy TD with protestors from ScamBridge and UCD Students Union, speaking to  a member of Grafton Cleaners management and the claim that the company’s use of the new  ‘Work Placement Experience Programme’ to get someone to ‘sort and dry clean clothes’ is akin to free labour.

      All the money being thrown at it would be better used by giving it to Jobseekers who are forced to choose between rent and food.

    Guy in the doorway explaining sizes to Paul Murphy.

    ”Paul, a hat this size will definitely be cheaper than a large Dr. Seuss one.”

    Seriously though, if you cannot sort and dry clean clothes you probably shouldn’t be out on the streets on your own, possibly because you’re a bit too young. You definitely shouldn’t be propping up a business either with free labour. What ever happened to capitalism? It’s almost like there are two different economic policies in place here, capitalism when you are broke, socialism when you are rich and incompetent running a business. Surely not?

    What next, training to be a ‘sandwich artist….’ Oh wait!
