We All Stand Together


Yesterday & today many local council & government workers across the country went on strike over low pay (or non pay) rises. The strike has affected all sorts of areas, libraries, bin collections, markets etc. I try to keep politics out of blogging, but I do think they have a point when they are asked to accept a pay rise which is less than than the inflation rate; making it effectively a pay cut.

My photo here shows a rally in the Market Square and a union person telling everyone why they are striking.
