Edinburgh Mayday: Unions must give hope - Owen Jones
great turnout at Edinburgh's May Day march and rally on 3 May heard
Owen Jones call on the labour movement to give people hope and defend
the NHS, the welfare state and all that was won by 'struggle and
sacrifice' in our history.
"We need to give hope to those who get up in the morning
to go to work to earn their poverty. We should say that if you
are in work the least you can expect is a living wage", he
told the packed rally at the Pleasance theatre. See
