As part of the Museum of Liverpool on the Road project the painting, ‘Unemployment on Merseyside – Campaigning for the Right to Work’ by Mike Jones has recently gone on loan to the People’s Centre, Mount Pleasant.

The impressive painting, previously on display at the Museum of Liverpool Life depicts the effects of unemployment and the ways in which Liverpool people have actively campaigned for the right to work. The painting will be on display until 2009.
