You’re being legally screwed!?

But Shirley, but Shirley… No, they really are allowed to treat us like this. “The law, in its majestic equality, forbids the rich as well as the poor to sleep under bridges, to beg in the streets, and to steal bread” as some geezer once said. The law is designed to protect property from the majority, to protect the interests of the rich, and the interests of a certain economic system. If we have learned one thing today it is that the law is an ass and unlikely to help any of us very much.

But don’t worry about it. Just because some senile old cunt in a wig isn’t going to do anything about it doesn’t mean you can’t. Nothing ever changes unless people stand up and fight, better to get sacked on your feet than to work on your (hands and) knees.

So get involved you lazy bastard!

What if I am getting screwed illegally?

These pages are ‘use at your own risk’! We’re burger flippers not lawyers and we strongly recommend you consult a ‘no win, no fee’ solicitor before doing anything crazy. We can also only provide a superficial overview here. More detailed information on employment law can be found at:

These pages are based on UK and EU law but some of the information will be relevant in the US and elsewhere. For information on US employment rights, see:
