What an amazing campaign in UK!
In UK (like in every other country too), people seeking refugee status are banned from working whilst they wait months, and often years (and even decades), for a decision on their asylum claim. Instead, they are left to live on just £5.39 per day, struggling to support themselves and their families, whilst the Government wastes the talents of thousands of people.
The @LiftTheBan campaign thinks that this is wrong and so do I. I too believe that people who have risked everything to find safety should have the best chance of contributing to society and integrating into communities. This means giving people seeking asylum the right to work so that they can use their skills and live in dignity. The Lift the Ban coalition is working to change this and to ensure that people seeking safety in the UK have the right to work.
LIFT THE BAN says exactly what Im saying for over three decades, which is: GIVE PEOPLE SEEKING ASYLUM THE RIGHT TO WORK!
