Hijack, Reclaim, Occupy!

Introducing the Emergent Service Workers Party
“When we demanded an end to wage labour, we didn’t just mean the wages!”
From people being forced to stack shelves in Poundland for free, through to office workers pushing their hours later and later, our wages no longer reflect our work.
The casino banks are being bailed out with our money, the corporations dodge their tax, our services are cut and we’re forced to work even more for even less.
Emergent service workers of the world unite!
The Haymarket martyrs died demanding an 8 hour paid working day. When was the last time any of us managed that?
When we’re not being blackmailed into slave labour for Homebase or Poundland, we’re burning the midnight oil working after hours for free. Every waking hour we check our emails, quickly responding to that memo from HR, or finishing off that report before the morning meeting.
Google and their ilk blur our work into our free time, we’re on call 24 hours a day, but no more!
Demand that the corporate internet is shut down at 6pm!
Unplug corporate gmail, spam filter that shite till the morning!
While we’re at it, demand that google pay some bloody tax too!
The eSWP will be launching this mayday.
A political party in the truest sense of the word!
Watch this space and join us to down tools at 6pm, Wed May 1st
