Wages, welfare and wellbeing – Labour’s economic plan for people affected by the coronavirus

Wages, welfare and wellbeing

The Government has been too slow responding to the coronavirus outbreak and its impact on our economy and people’s lives. We urgently need a support package that helps everyone and guarantees incomes.

Labour has a plan to secure everybody’s wages, welfare and wellbeing in this unprecedented time.


We propose that the Government –

  • Underwrites the bulk of wages for those at risk of losing their jobs, or temporarily out of work, in exchange for a job guarantee
  • Gives financial support to people who are sick or self-isolating because of the coronavirus
  • Provides security for those people who are now out of a job

Read our report for our proposals in full.

Together, we will get through this.
