Abstract

In this timely piece, Dr Ewan McGaughey writes about the Conservative Party’s most recent labour policies. Seen historically, he argues that there is little new about these policies. History shows when more people are earning middle incomes, when most people are not pressed toward the minimum, and when the top-earners are not taking ‘other people’s money’ there is greater growth, human development and prosperity. The way this always happened in Britain was through a voice at work, through collective bargaining and the right to participate in workplace governance. The Tories’ policies run contrary to this.
