At today’s TUC conference, Jeremy Corbyn said he aimed to deliver better wages and greater job security. Mr Corbyn told delegates Labour “will put the power in the hands of workers”. He added: “For 40 years, the share of the cake going to workers has been getting smaller and smaller. It’s no coincidence that the same period has seen a sustained attack on the organisations that represent workers – trade unions. We have witnessed a deliberate, decades-long transfer of power away from working people.”
