Labour #Bath & NE Somerset Manifesto

A Labour Council will start building Council housing again. 🏘️

The failures of the Lib Dems and Tories have resulted in a housing crisis. The provision of genuinely affordable housing is our number one priority.
We will build more homes that are for people, not profit!
We will start building Council housing again and change the priorities of ADL, the Council’s wholly owned development company, so that more homes are built and rented out by the Council, not a housing association.

Ten days ago, #Cambodia announced that garment sector minimum wage will rise from $170 to $182/month in 2019 💰

That’s a rise of 7%! 📈 Sounds pretty good, right? 😃


Minimum wage analysis 👇
The minimum wage for garment and footwear workers in Cambodia has risen 10 times in 22 years since it was introduced in 1997, the last 8 times in each of the last 8 years.
Yesterday’s increase of 7% adds to a total increase of 355% over 22 years.
Lucky garment workers 🍀?
But as wages rise, the price of food and rent goes up too.
Real wages consider the balance between rising wages and rising costs, comparing what workers can afford relative to previous years.
In real terms, wages have risen much slower – increasing just 44% from 2001 to 2016.

It is imperative we expose the ongoing #GOP narrative that uses Leader Nancy Pelosi as a lightening rod for misogynistic, ageist and partisan attacks and what motives and attitudes lie behind it. /1 #IStandWithNancy #GOPLies #DemocraticPrincipledLeadership
In order to get at that truth, it is vital for voters to meet Nancy Pelosi, understand her background, accomplishments and values as well as her vital importance to the Party of the People./2
Nancy Pelosi has consistently put her constituents first and foremost and as Speaker and Minority Leader she has served all Americans with the same commitment and intensity./3 #PrincipledDemocraticLeadership #IStandWithNancy
