Let them work!

Exiled journalists who are asylum seekers can now become full NUJ members but it's still practically impossible for them to get paid work with a media outlet based in the UK, as asylum seekers are denied the right to do paid work. This is a right that some asylum seekers used to have, but which has been taken away from them. The Refugee Council and the Trades Union Congress are asking trade union members to write to their MPs on this issue as part of their Let Them Work campaign.
