PETITION TEXT: Rishi Sunak - Workers Can’t Wait. Urgent support now!
The Tories are failing to do enough to save lives, stop job losses and prevent deepening poverty. People urgently need support now including these 10 measures:
☑️ Increased Statutory Sick Pay for all
☑️ No Universal Credit cut – boost it and ensure a minimum income guarantee
☑️ Furlough fixed – everyone covered, full wages and a right for carers to access
☑️ The National Minimum wage raised to at least £10 an hour
☑️ A pay rise for public sector workers
☑️ A national food service – no one should go hungry
☑️ No evictions or repossessions – cancel rents, strengthen renters’ rights and support
☑️ An end to tuition fees – rent refunds for students
☑️ Free broadband for all – everyone must be able to work and learn
☑️ Emergency extra resources for our public services including local government and for jobs. Investment not cuts - for a #PeoplesPlan for jobs and livelihoods.
As voices from across society – including numerous MPs, councillors and unions such as Unite the Union - have said #workerscantwait until the March budget. We need real support now.
