We’re the Labour Party and we don’t support killing workers for profit
Labour leader Keir Starmer was asked on right-leaning radio station LBC today whether he will stand with unions if they tell their members not to go back to unsafe workplaces. Boris Johnson has now announced that workers must return to work if they can’t work from home – a move putting low-paid workers at the highest risk.
Starmer answered that ‘We’d have to look at it’:
No, Keir. The answer is simple:
Yes. Yes we would.
We’re the Labour Party and we don’t support killing workers for profit.
