Fight for rights

Daily Record - - NEWS -

THE two-minute com­fort break rule at Vir­gin Me­dia’s Scot­tish call cen­tre is out­ra­geous and shame­ful.

It may seem funny at first but it is an in­sight into the times we live in and the kind of shenani­gans we can ex­pect from com­pa­nies in a post-Brexit Bri­tain.

The treat­ment of staff in drudge jobs, with wages and con­di­tions squeezed like a sponge, tells us all we need to know about the so-called jobs mir­a­cle that fol­lowed the eco­nomic crash.

Un­cer­tainty and lack of in­vest­ment has brought low-skilled work and de­pressed wages, which in real terms are no bet­ter now than they were a decade ago.

At least the CWU trade union are ac­tive and fight­ing against the ridicu­lous im­po­si­tions on the work­force.
