Americans experience homelessness each day and don’t have regular access to showers
of asylum seekers want to be able to work
of people support giving asylum seekers the right to work
Currently, asylum seekers in the UK are denied the right to work and are being forced to live on just £5.39 of benefits a day.
Sometimes something makes so little sense that it’s hard to believe it’s true. Ben & Jerry’s felt that way when we learned that people seeking asylum in the UK aren’t allowed to work. Really? People who have fled war and violence want to get to work building a new life for themselves and their families. And yet, because of this law, they can’t. So… we were thinking, why not change the rules? Why not let them provide for their families and give back to the country that’s sheltered them? It’s so simple. It makes so much sense. And it can happen if we want it to.
Join with us today by signing the petition and tell the Home Secretary #LiftTheBan! There is a considerable amount of support for this policy change and due to the next immigration bill being put forward towards the end of this year, the time to act is now.
