Unite Community members were joined by Labour MPs last week for a Universal Credit demonstration outside Parliament. Together they sent a loud and clear message to the government to cancel the £20 a week cut to Universal Credit which threatens to decimate millions of people’s living standards at a time of unprecedented crisis amid the pandemic and soaring living costs.
If the cut goes through as planned next month, more than 6m households will lose over £1000 a year, while hundreds of thousands of children would be plunged into poverty.
Unite continues to campaign to cancel the cut — you can find out more about how you can help here. You can check out highlights from last week’s demo in pictures below:
