Cost of Living Survey

Families in Bedford and Kempston are facing a cost of living crisis. Prices are increasing, wages are falling and for many people there is rising insecurity in the workplace.

The government has made life less secure for working people by leading a race to the bottom for the lowest wages and the fewest rights at work.

More people are working part-time but want to work full-time, more people are on exploitive zero-hours contracts and the value of the national minimum wage has declined by 5% under David Cameron.

Please take the time to fill in this survey. Let Patrick Hall and the Labour team know about your concerns.
