Why Say No To Unpaid Trial Shifts?
''I joined this campaign because ending unpaid trial shifts is both a moral principle and a practical necessity. We hear of people not having enough money to get by, and in a system where unpaid trial shifts are considered the norm, even the fundamental right of payment for one's work is threatened. No one should have to work for free, and I believe saying no to unpaid trial shifts is the first step to saying no to all exploitative employment practices.'
Roles in the campaign:
Team member, activist, social media
