Shoulder to shoulder

I stand with low-paid workers

who make the rich rich.

  • I didn’t think my contempt for 12 years of Conservative Government could grow any larger, but their refusal to negotiate on salaries during a cost-of-living crisis and >10% inflation, is beyond belief. I have worked hard in the public sector my entire working life and over the last 10 years have been hit with a real-terms pay cut of 25%, which is frankly disgusting. I should be at the peak of my earning power but have been utterly neutered by this anti-public sector regime.
  • They have run down our public services deliberately, reducing them to the bare minimum service. Their solution… reform, which is code for privatisation.
  • Successive Tory Governments have asset-stripped the country, privatising transport, energy and utilities to favour wealth creation at the expense of public service. There is nothing left to sell, except the health service and education. I hate what this country has become. Greedy, avaricious, selfish, uncompassionate, xenophobic. Thank you, Margaret Thatcher, your legacy is alive and well in the UK.

  1. I empathize with your pain. It’s here States side also. Reagan broke up the labor unions in the 80’s and there’s the disparity gap between the have’s and have not’s are the greatest since the 1920’s. And all the legislations put in place to prevent this happening has been legislated out by politicians bought by wealthy corporations.
