“Extreme wealth inequality like this is a sign of a sick economy” – Laura Pidcock

Laura Pidcock, Labour’s Shadow Employment Rights Secretary, responding The Equality Trust’s report on wealth inequality, said,

“Extreme wealth inequality like this is a sign of a sick economy.

“The Tories are handing out tens of billions in tax giveaways to the wealthiest few and big business, while millions are living in poverty, schools are begging parents for funds and a record number of families are turning to foodbanks to feed themselves.

“Boris Johnson is in bed with the billionaires – the Labour Party is on your side. Our country needs real change, where wealth and power are in the hands of the many, not the few.”
