- End austerity and restore the public sector, creating over one million good jobs that pay at least a living wage.
- Pay for this with a new wealth tax on the top 1%, a Robin Hood Tax on the banks and the closure of tax loopholes.
- Increase the minimum wage to reach a living wage of £10 an hour by 2020.
