On Tuesday 15th January, Lothian MSP Neil Findlay joined students to discuss the prospect of fair work at West Lothian College health and wellbeing event.
He was joined by organisations like Unite Community, West Lothian Citizens Advice Bureau (CAB) and the Poverty Alliance to offer advice to those in attendance.
It was a chance for the MSP to learn first-hand from students, who often find themselves in part-time, precarious work, about their working conditions and the impact that these have on their lives.
Neil Findlay MSP said:
“It was fantastic to go along to speak with staff and students at West Lothian College to learn more about the issues affecting them.
“I spoke to students who were also employed in part-time work about the impact of precarious employment in the form of 0 hour contracts and low pay and how this can detrimentally affect their studies.
“I want to thank the West Lothian College Students Association for welcoming me.
