This report underlines just how rigged our economy & country actually is in favour of the wealthiest – Jeremy Corbyn

Jeremy Corbyn MP,
leader of the Labour Party
, commenting on a report by the
Social Mobility Commission, said:

“This
report underlines just how rigged our economy and country actually is in favour
of the wealthiest and the privileged few. While the Conservatives look after
the interests of their friends, they are closing down opportunity for the many
by slashing funding for education.

"Labour
is committed to a country that works for all, a real living wage of at least
£10 an hour by 2020, investment in industry, infrastructure and public services
and a national education service which equips the next generation with the
skills our country needs to succeed, so that no one and no community is left
behind.”
