The latest Tory cuts to Working Tax Credits will affect so many people, both in the private and public sector.

Benefit cuts will mean that the unemployed will be unable to keep a roof over their heads and feed their families.

Public sector workers have suffered from pay freezes for years and even the latest 1% does not cover the cost of everyday living. The private sector has suffered similar issues.

The so-called living wage is a joke, economic experts say that the lowest earners are going to suffer huge cuts to their incomes, yet tax cuts to millionaires go on.

Labour warned that this would happen and it is.

It is going to hit our economy hard because if there is less in our pockets then less is spent in our local economy which will lead to further job cuts. This is just the start no doubt with worse to come.
