spotGovernment attack on DWP job centres and offices

As part of the Tory offensive against the public sector, the chancellor has announced a 20% reduction in Department for Work and Pensions (DWP) offices, and more jobcentres to share sites in local authority premises, to deliver 30% savings on estates costs. This fits in with the approaching end of the contract with the company which owns the DWP estate.

Low pay, no way!

spotEnd poverty pay now... Get organised!

Over Christmas I worked gruelling hours in the retail sector, sometimes up to seven hours without any breaks. I did not dare refuse or complain as I was on a four-hour contract and I knew that I'd be put at the bottom of the list if a shift came up at short notice.

spotUK textile workers on 3 an hour!

spotSlave labour at Sports Direct

spotBuild 100 days of resistance to Trump's agenda!

One of the most reactionary, bigoted and predatory administrations in modern history has taken office. The Trump presidency, from the vicious tweets to the bizarre press conferences to the reactionary cabinet picks and executive orders, has millions of people understandably feeling they are in an unfolding nightmare.
