Letter: Good luck to the striking workers.Byline: Paul Jenkins There are many people named Paul Jenkins:
Dear Editor, Best of luck to the council workers who are going on strike this week. If only more low paid employees in other sectors had the backbone to do this the working class, who made this country what it used to be, would be better off.
It's all very well government ministers telling employees they shouldn't should·n't
Contraction of should not.
shouldn't should not
shouldn't should be asking for above inflation pay rises, but those rules certainly don't apply to them or the MPs, so why should council workers be excluded?
Particularly when they have gone four years with below inflation pay rises and face ever increasing prices of food, fuel and housing on what in many cases is a minimum wage.
When will the government realise that the most important issue which is ruining the country and creating frustration and crime is the increasing gap between the well off who don't give a stuff about the credit crunch Credit Crunch
An economic condition whereby investment capital is difficult to obtain. Banks and investors become weary of lending funds to corporations thereby driving up the price of debt products for borrowers. , and the average worker who keeps the country going.
Paul Jenkins, Rugeley, StaEordshire.
