Resolution Foundation succinctly encapsulate hardship many across Britain are facing under the Tories – Long-Bailey

Rebecca Long-Bailey MP, Labour’s Shadow Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy Secretary, commenting on the findings of the Resolution Foundation’s report on wage growth, said:

“The Resolution Foundation report succinctly encapsulates the hardship many across Britain are facing under the Tories and will continue to face in 2018.

“After seven years of Conservative economic mismanagement, the figures speak for themselves. Real wages are still lower than they were in 2010 and Britain faces a productivity crisis.

"This is not a Government willing or able to raise productivity and living standards for people in Britain.”
