Bradford campaign for £10 an hour
On 24 May a handful of Socialist Party members set up a stall in Bradford city centre to campaign for a £10 an hour minimum wage. None of us could have expected the response we got. Before the table was set up people were standing around offering support. At one point people were three deep attempting to sign the petition.
In the end we sold 30 copies of the Socialist paper and 13 people expressed an interest in joining the Socialist Party. Several shop workers came and chatted to us in their lunch break.
The history of Bradford includes the late Pat Wall, the socialist MP. Just one of the many reasons why this city needs a socialist alternative to the newly elected Labour group.
- Bradford Socialist Party meeting: Tuesday 3 June at 7pm. Resource Centre, Chapel Street, Little Germany.
