End poverty pay – we need a real living wage now!

End poverty pay!

 we need a real living wage now!

The Con-Dems say we’re in a ‘recovery’. Well, it doesn’t feel that way to most of us.

While bankers get their fat-cat bonuses & pay, the real value of pay for the rest of us has fallen 7% since 2008. Since 2010 there has only been one month when average pay didn’t fall – A month skewed by the bankers’ getting their bonuses!

Tory Chancellor George Osborne has floated a rise from the current rate of £6.31 to £7 an hour. But this doesn’t even reach the ‘living wage’ of £7.65. An hourly rate set independently & updated annually according to basic costs of living.

Today the minimum wage is at its lowest level in real terms since 2004. Millions of workers struggle by. Labour talk about a cost of living crisis – but propose nothing concrete!

 Socialists stand & fight for a minimum wage that is enough to live on – No exemptions!

The Socialist Party says:

  • Fight for a minimum wage of £8 an hour – no exemptions! As an immediate step towards £10 an hour
  • All workers, including part-timers, temps, casual & migrant workers to have trade union rates of pay, employment protection, sickness & holiday rights from day one of employment
  • Reject ‘workfare’. For the right to decent benefits, education, training, or a job, without compulsion
  • Scrap the anti-trade union laws! For fighting trade unions, democratically controlled by their members
  • A maximum 35-hour week with no loss of pay


Obscene wealth!

A recent report by Oxfam revealed that the World’s 85 richest people have same wealth as the 3.5 billion poorest!

We need a Socialist Alternative to end this crazy capitalist system!

Join the Socialist Party do it!
