We are in the middle of a deepening cost-of-living crisis, yet the Tories are more interesting in doing the bidding of their rich backers than saving lives, jobs and livelihoods. We need urgent action, including these 10 measures:

☑️ Britain needs a pay rise - National Minimum Wage raised to £15 an hour for all; the pay rise public sector workers are asking for; full union rights to bargain for better pay.

☑️ Increased Statutory Sick Pay now for everyone - at a real living wage of £320 a week from day one.

☑️  A social security system to end poverty - reverse the Universal Credit cut and extend the uplift to legacy benefits; boost benefits; for a minimum income guarantee.

☑️ Extra resources to create universal, comprehensive public services– stop cuts and privatisation; Save our NHS - for a national care service; properly fund local government.

☑️ Stop the corporate rip-off  - public ownership of energy, water, transport and mail to bring bills down and end fuel poverty.

☑️ Homes for all - no evictions or repossessions; for renters’ rights and rent controls; tackle the homelessness emergency; fix the housing crisis with a mass council house building programme.

☑️ Make education a right not privilege - end tuition fees and the student debt scandal; for publicly-owned, free broadband to assist learning.

☑️ For the right to food - Enshrine the right to food in law; universal free school meals all year; for a National Food Service.

☑️ Decent jobs for all – end insecure working including through banning zero hours and fire-and-rehire; for the right to flexible work on workers’ not bosses’ terms.

☑️ Massive investment in a better future with full employment – reverse austerity; for a Green New Deal as part of a #PeoplesPlan for jobs and livelihoods.
