Unite press release

For immediate release: Friday 23 September

The Chancellor’s mini-budget is a colossal warning to workers.

Chancellor’s mini-budget will boost corporate greed and make rampant profiteering the priority while millions struggle to make ends meet. 

Unite general secretary, Sharon Graham said: “This mini-budget is unashamedly a budget for the rich, big business and the City – highest earners’ tax slashed, corporation tax slashed, investment bankers’ bonuses let rip.

“Billionaires and city bankers will once again be considering which tax haven they will stash their money in, whilst millions of ordinary families continue to struggle to make ends meet.

“If there are billions of pounds available to spend then the best way to help the economy would be to give public sector workers a pay rise.”
