End Exploitative Working Practices at B&M Bargains

 

It has been brought to my attention, through recent press coverage that B&M Bargains Stores have been offering prospective employees unpaid trial shifts prior to them being informed whether or not they have been hired. I understand that not all people offered trial shifts are given a job at the end, and that many go unpaid. 

I believe exploitative recruitment practises such as this should not be allowed and I call upon B&M Bargains Stores to treat employees, and prospective employees, with the dignity and respect that they deserve.

I call upon this profitable retailer to pay those undertaking trial shifts, thus bringing to an end unpaid, exploitative labour.

Furthermore, I call upon B&M Bargains to offer all employees the real living wage of at least £8.75 per hour regardless of age and to provide workers with a specified minimum number of hours each week.

I urge you to sign this petition in order to end exploitative working practices used by this prominent UK retailer.

    My wife got caught out by this a few years ago. It’s well out of order and long past time it was banned!

    Before Christmas too B&M? I am very saddened to learn of this and will shop elsewhere if this practice continues.
