Youth Fight For Jobs Rally

Jenny Day
30th October 2021

This demonstration in Leicester on 9th October was part of a national relaunch of the campaign. Youth Fights for Jobs seeks to push the government into actively focusing on sustainable, valued employment which isn't low paid, zero hours, temporary or limited in scope. Although small, it was uplifting to see young activists organising and communicating with the Saturday afternoon shoppers. This is a campaign the NEU needs to support and promote.

What was I doing there as an official oldie? I spoke and sent solidarity on behalf of the NEU and LDTUC.
