Work but no pay

Kapi-Mana News - - OPINION -

For more than six months, I have been work­ing for Mana Re­cov­ery.

It is a sup­ported em­ploy­ment pro­gramme for people with men­tal health dif­fi­cul­ties.

I work 10 hours a week. My take-home pay was $25 per week, but now, be­cause of fund­ing cut­backs, I am paid noth­ing.
