And it’s also about time that Labour asked why it is so important that the state subsidise the lifestyle of so many people working for large companies who do not pay high enough wages, and have no intention of paying enough to ensue their employees have a hope of making ends meet. Because let’s be clear what these benefits are – many of which go to those in work. What they actually represent are straightforward subsidies to the profit of companies who can underpay their staff as a result, and as such they’re another shift from the poorest to the richest in society.
Quite right too.
And we most certainly shouldn\’t be subsidising the profits of large companies nor aiding the shift of incomes and resources from the poorest to the richest.
And it is indeed these in work benefits which cause this. Therefore of course we should abolish all in work benefits, to stop the subsidisation of such large corporate profits.
