An unemployed university graduate who says she was forced to take an unpaid job stacking shelves at Poundland has begun an historic legal challenge against the government.
Cait Reilly from Birmingham claims it was a breach of her human rights.
The twenty three year old had to leave her voluntary work placement at a museum in order to take up the bargain store job. She feared if she didn't she would lose her job-seekers allowance.
A judge has rejected graduate Cait Reilly's claim that a scheme requiring her to work for free breached human rights laws banning slavery.
