Working people in the UK are being squeezed like never before. Wages are worth less today than they were in 2008. But living costs keep rising. Something’s got to give because for most people the government’s much- hyped economic recovery is passing them by.
Today, is the start of Fair Pay Fortnight: 24 March – 6 April.

Whether you work in the food industry, construction, road transport, manufacturing or public services, right across the economy, workers are feeling the pinch. Britain’s workers have lost £4,000, on average since 2009 and many people are trapped in low-paid and insecure jobs.
