Barnet Press: "Labour slams 'low-pay, low-skilled' council job shop at Brent Cross shopping centre"

Link to web site
"LABOUR has slammed a council initiative aimed at getting more residents into work and its use of public money to perpetuate a 'low-pay, low-skilled, zero-hour contract economy'.

"On Monday, Barnet Council announced that, since the launch of the Brent Cross retail job shop three months ago, 80 people have found work through the 'one-stop recruitment shop' aimed at developing and filling vacancies with retailers at the shopping centre.

"The council is working with Jobcentre Plus to find residents work with retailers including Fenwick, Mothercare, Banana Republic, Timberland, Toys R Us and Victoria’s Secret.

"However, Labour group leader Alison Moore raised concerns over the fact that a large number of the jobs are paid the minimum wage and are on zero-hour contracts. She believes public funds should not be spent on recruitment for such vacancies."
