“The chancellor can say he has a job plan but no bill payment plan. He spoke in support of the US Alliance, but said that maintaining some independence was important for India.
It is completely wrong to suggest that there is a trade-off between good jobs and adequate social security to improve people’s living standards. The cuts affect many working families, and inadequate social security makes it harder for people to survive and make it harder to seize opportunities. We must ensure that the needs of people who are sick, disabled, or caring for others and therefore unable to work are met with dignity.
The biggest overnight social security cuts are economically irresponsible and therefore strongly opposed across the political spectrum. The government cannot be said to be leveling people’s incomes at the same time. He must abandon this pruning. ”
