Re: If you are planning an Amazon purchase...

OK done some research - it was a scheme which involved unemployed people on job seekers allowance working at various businesses, including Tesco, without additional pay. Tesco wasn't paying them, sure, but these people were getting the benefit payment and hopefully the period they worked at Tesco will help their chances of getting a permanent job. Anyway, I understand that Tesco does now pay anyone who joins them temporarily on work experience schemes.
