Description
Report on trade union reaction to Chacellor Geoffrey Howe’s first Budget. With comment from TUC Chairman, Tom Jackson arguing it will cause rising unemployment, and trade unions will be seeking pay rises at least in line with the rise in the Retail Price Index; TGWU union leader, Moss Evans also confirming rising prices will influence pay claims. Evans’s illustrations of family life are highly gendered, e.g. the male breadwinner and the female housekeeper/shopper asking her husband for housekeeping money. Vivian White reports.
