My Life As A Bar Worker

This is Laura’s life: age 24; a Northerner; bar team leader for a large pub chain (and formerly a McDonald’s manager); zero hours contract; on a minimum wage; no savings in the bank; trainers donated to her by a friend; a boss who spied on the workers’ own secret Facebook group as they were organising a union. “The main reason I joined the union is because I believe in collective action, all of us are better than one of us,” Laura explains. Part Two in the WellRedFilms work series. ………………. In case you missed it: Part One (My life as a call centre worker)
