In England, young unemployed people are being told to work for up to two months at supermarkets and discount stores without pay and no promise of future work. Under some circumstances, people can lose jobless benefits if they refuse to work for free in these "job experience" programs.
Is Walmart benefitting? You know it. Its Asda UK subsidiary is getting the free workers.
This ought to REALLY encourage employers to put people to work.
