World Day for Decent Work - Thursday 7 October

Today is "World Day for Decent Work".  Check out "BloggersUnite" for further details.

"WDDW therefore has three core messages for this year:

1) Growth and decent jobs, not austerity, are essential to beating the crisis and ending poverty.

2) Quality public services are essential for a decent life and must not be slashed in the name of fiscal consolidation.

3) The financial sector must pay for the damage it has caused and be made to serve the real economy and real human needs".
Let's see if Lord Hutton is going mark the occasion by making his interim report on Public Pensions due out at 08:00 today really fair and equitable (see next post).
