The relaunch of Youth Fight for Jobs officially got under way, with the national steering committee meeting on 14 July. Delegates attended, in a personal capacity, from eight trade unions. Sarah Woolley general secretary of the Bakers, Food and Allied Workers Union (BFAWU) also attended.

We discussed what the key demands of Youth Fight for Jobs should be: a decent job for all, end zero-hour contracts, 12 an hour minimum wage as a step to 15, mass programme of council house building, rent control, and trade union rights and recognition in all workplaces.

The committee agreed to hold a national day of action to make these demands on 9 October when furlough is due to end. Protests will be held up and down the country, so join us then and help our fightback.

Finance appeal

The coronavirus crisis has laid bare the class character of society in numerous ways. It is making clear to many that it is the working class that keeps society running, not the CEOs of major corporations.

The results of austerity have been graphically demonstrated as public services strain to cope with the crisis.

Inevitably, during the crisis we have not been able to sell the Socialist and raise funds in the ways we normally would.
We therefore urgently appeal to all our viewers to donate to our Fighting Fund.
