Britain needs a pay rise
Something must be done to halt this living standards crisis.
The simplest next step for politicians is to scrap public sector pay restrictions. These artificial restrictions have meant drastic cuts in real pay for those who deliver vital public services.
But this isn’t enough. As the striking McDonald’s have recently shown, those in the private sector clearly need a pay rise too. We want to see the minimum wage rise to £10 per hour as quick as possible.
We also need investment to create great jobs across the country. Too many communities have been left behind and regional inequalities continue to exist. We need a proper industrial strategy with a Great Jobs Agenda at its heart.
