‘The UK is one of the most unequal countries in the developed world’ says the March 2018 Equality Trust manifestos.
The Equality Trust have published their national, local and individual manifestos designed to help people across the UK take action to reduce inequality.
The manifestos states:
- We must protect and progress workers’ rights: strengthen trade union rights and introduce employment rights from day one
- We must explore the most effective ways of distributing wealth fairly and efficiently: establish an independent Commission on Wealth
- We must end child poverty: reinstate child poverty targets and commit to eliminating child poverty
- We must tackle our housing crisis: establish a large scale house building programme, prioritising social housing and truly affordable housing, built to high quality and environmentally friendly standards.
