From our friends at Closing the Gap (a lobby group against income inequality – join if you haven’t!):
– Max Rashbrooke talking about his book Inequality: a New Zealand Crisis and more on Monday 18 November, 5.30pm @ Auckland Trades Hall, 147 Great North Rd, Grey Lynn
– The Bruce Jesson Lecture from Rt Hon Sir Edmund Thomas is well worth reading. He pushes the Living Wage as a substantive right quoting the Universal Declaration of Human Rights.
– And the Swiss are going to vote on a 1:12 rule for executive pay. No CEO will be allowed to earn more in a year than their poorest employee earns in a month. They’re unlikely to pay Roche’s secretaries 1 million francs/year – so large CEO pay cuts are likely… although big business is fighting it tooth and claw.
And not from Closing The Gap, but for a bit of fun – a great UK game: Super Tory Boy. Taste my austerity!
