TUC calls for government action on income inequality

The Office of National Statistics published figures yesterday that show, not surprisingly, the rich are getting richer and the poor are getting poorer.

TUC's general secretary, Frances O'Grady, said it's time the government did something about it.

In a press release published on the TUC website Frances said: “If the economy was working well, low-income households would be catching up with those at the top. But the gulf between rich and poor is widening. 

“We need to redesign the economy to make it work for everyone. The government can do more by reversing cuts to family support and raising the minimum wage to £10.”
