Why does the leader of the ‘party of the workers’ want to deny workers a living wage?

Keir Starmer: The leader of the ‘party of the workers’ doesn’t want workers to be paid a living wage.

This should be self-explanatory:

The simple fact is that any pay rise is achievable – even one that matches a shockingly-high rise in inflation such as we saw in 2022.

Governments set spending priorities – which could include provision for inflation-matching pay rises – and create the money to make them possible.

They also set taxation priorities – tax validates the UK’s currency (the Pound), limits inflation, and rebalances income inequalities (if the government of the day is so minded).

This means firms such as those that are currently profiting massively from higher prices for their products could be taxed so that their profits (after tax) would be appropriate for what they do, and the rest could prevent inflation related to the higher wages people would need in order to afford the increased cost of living these firms had created.

Don’t let any politician tell you a pay rise that matches inflation isn’t affordable. It is. They just don’t want you to be paid appropriately for the work you do.

Have YOU donated to my crowdfunding appeal, raising funds to fight false libel claims by TV celebrities who should know better? These court cases cost a lot of money so every penny will help ensure that wealth doesn’t beat justice.
