1. Work is a pillar of society without which almost nothing can be created, produced or done. Yet people have almost no say in what work gets done, in how it gets done or who it gets done by. The power is in the hands of employers and big business in general, who are only concerned with their profits.
2. The improved wages and conditions won by the strikes and struggles of organised labour over the last 100 years are being undermined. Jobs are becoming increasingly low-paid, non-union, temporary or part-time employment with few guaranteed rights and conditions.
