Government Inaction Is Leaving Living Standards Falling, Says TUC

Commenting on today’s (Tuesday) inflation figures from the Office for National Statistics (ONS), which show inflation continuing to outpace wage growth, TUC General Secretary Frances O’Grady said:

“Inflation is still outpacing wages and working people’s living standards are falling fast. The government can’t keep on standing by and doing nothing. A plan to boost wages is urgently needed.

“Public sector workers must get a proper pay rise. The minimum wage must go up to £10 as quickly as possible. And the Chancellor must boost infrastructure spending in his spring statement – this would help counter the loss of confidence in the economy caused by Brexit uncertainty.”
