Here is my reaction to the abolition of the 10% tax rate in Britain, & what it will do for many Library Workers.
Preamble to a manifesto for Library & Information
We the landless urban poor.
We who help all.
We whose skills and labour enriches all.
We who help others to achieve a better life.
We who help to educate all.
We who help all of society to work better,
achieve both healthier & happier lives.
We fiscally impoverished Library & information workers.
All we ask for is a living wage,
just enough so that we no longer have to live in poverty,
are forced to live in slums.
We the landless Urban poor.
Library & Information workers.
