On Saturday 18th October, the TUC will host the “Britain Needs A Payrise” march in central London. Thousands of workers, students, claimants and more will march together demanding an end to the widening gap between rich and poor. York TUC have organised a coach, and we’re asking everyone to buy a ticket and be part of this big pre-General Election push to get this issue heard. We can’t afford to have another election debate dictated by banks and high-earners.
Frances O’Grady, TUC General Secretary writes, “Hard-pressed families across the UK must be beginning to wonder when the tough times they are experiencing will ever end. They keep hearing that the economy is growing and learning of yet another bonus extravaganza in the city, yet their own wages never seem to go far enough.”
