As another year ends the reality for working class people – employed, unemployed, students or pensioners – remains the same.
Commentators, conservative economists, newspapers columnists and political pundits are queuing up to explain away wage freezes, welfare cuts, poorer public services and higher unemployment. They blame everything and everyone one, but never the economic system we live under.
2018 is likely to be yet another year when the books are balanced at the expense of working class people. The 2008 crisis in capitalism is still being bailed out ten years later through welfare cuts, wage freezes, price hikes reduced and privatised public services and by unemployment.
Constantly we are told that ‘we are all in this together’ – no we are not!
