Scottish Labour has called for a budget that delivers justice for frontline health and social care workers, invests in jobs and businesses and supports our local councils.
Speaking in advance of the budget debate today, Scottish Labour interim leader and finance spokesperson Jackie Baillie said: “We need a budget that delivers a recovery with fairness and decency at its heart.
“Scottish Labour will today call on the SNP Government to support our call for a £15 an hour rate for all social care workers – it’s the least these vital, key workers deserve.
“The pandemic has rocked Scotland’s economy and led to a cost of living crisis for millions of Scots. That’s why we need a budget that not only kickstarts Scotland’s economic recovery, but also puts fairness at the very heart of our economic future.”
