Two people have won appeals against a Tory government scheme that obliged people to work for no pay or else they'd lose their job seeker's allowance.
One was a geology graduate forced to work as a shelf stacker in Poundland for nothing.
I am really glad to hear this because I thought all along that this scheme was unjust, benefiting the employer while not benefiting the
employeeslave at all. In the nominally Christian Great Britain Christ's statement that "a man is worthy of his hire" was ignored. That is wrong, wrong, wrong. On the geology graduate's CV how could "working as a shelf stacker at Poundland" (for nothing) help her find a geology job?
I wish the geology student and the HGV driver the best of luck in finding appropriate and well paid jobs soon. They, and the others who have been forced to work for no pay, deserve a better working life.

Have any of you been forced to work as slaves under the Great Britain or similar schemes in other countries?
