Exeter Claimants Begin Jobcentre Picket

Over the last two weeks we’ve regularly been present outside Exeter jobcentre, handing out flyers, discussing peoples’ struggles and supporting claimants as they deal with the DWP. Dave, one of the picketers said:

“It feels great to be out doing something positive, talking to people face to face instead of getting angry online. There’s a real sense of community and trust that comes when people know you’re there because it matters and not because you’re getting paid.”

Members hope the picket will continue to grow and the idea will spread to other jobcentres around the country.
