A message from Richard Leonard on why a vote for Labour on Dec 12th is so vital

  • Provide the funding for real pay rises for public service workers, funding a 5% pay rise in April, and we expect the Scottish Government to honour this where pay is devolved.
  • Introduce a real Living Wage of at least £10 an hour immediately, for all workers aged 16 and over, and ban zero hour contracts.
  • Kick-start a green industrial revolution, creating up to 100,000 good, skilled jobs.
  • Save people money on fares and bills by bringing rail, mail and energy into public ownership and rolling out a publicly owned full fibre broadband network, free to all.
