Callum Adams from the GMB Young Members Network writes about their campaign for a fair deal for young workers.
Imagine going to work. Imagine that you do the exact same amount of work as your colleagues but when your pay comes through you’ve received a completely different level of compensation for your labour. Now imagine you take this diminished wage home. You have to pay your rent; you have to pay your bills; you have to buy food and essentials. Your costs aren’t any less than those of your colleagues but for some reason you have been given less to meet them with.
