The practically omnipotent Paula G strikes with another video insight on fightbacks here.

Tara Keane, a former La Senza worker (remember them?) had this to say:

I was working for La Senza, a highly successful retailer in Ireland. We worked all through Christmas, all through New year without being paid and then one night we got a phone call from England saying “don’t come to work tomorrow.” We made the decision to occupy the shop to guarantee our wage. And like the workers in the Paris Bakery we had fantastic support from the public. From trade unions and other organisations, and it was their donations and support that kept us going and helped us win our fight. But absolutely no worker in this country should have to rely on hand outs instead of the wages they worked for.
