Campaign: To make young people aware of their rights in the workplace

Since the age of 15 I’ve had multiple part-time jobs alongside my studies. I’ve been paid the absolute minimum employers can legally get away with and I’ve been expected to stay late without pay, but simultaneously told off if I’m a minute late back from a break.

 

It made me feel quite frustrated and not really valued as a worker. 

 

I’m working with Fixers to encourage other young people to know their rights in the workplace. 

 

I think it would be absolutely amazing if even a handful of people take the time to just research what their rights are.

The following Fixers helped me with this Fix:
