With the We Care Charity we launched up and running, and an increasing number of projects for the poor and homeless already established in the area .
Deptford and New Cross is also the main key target seat area for Lewisham People Before Profit,
Deptford is turning into the centre of the UK fight on poverty, a stain on this and the last Goverment which has seen the gap between rich and poor grow to excessive levels, whilst workers in the main are paid so little as prices and costs go up, they need help at the most basic level.
The Goverment seems to be seeking to brand every one on welfare as cheats and layabouts, forgetting to mention that 61% plus of people working earn so little they need welfare.
Are you aware that by allowing big business to pay low wages so that the workers have to secure welfare support is really a way of big business boosting profits and share price.
If these firms had to pay proper wages they would make less profit, but we as tax payers would not need to pay so many people welfare, to pay workers decent pay would reduce the debt, and see our money better spent.
Sadly Labour and Conservatives are these days all about big Business and care little for the workers, just look at the number of defeated Labour MPs from the last Goverment, presently working in the city.
