House of Lords votes to keep income-related child poverty measures | Society | The Guardian
[ trying to redefine poverty! ] Iain Duncan Smith, the work and pensions secretary, announced the proposals in July, prompting dismay among child poverty charities. He said the government would scrap its measurement of child poverty and the aim to eradicate it by 2020, while replacing it with a new duty to report levels of educational attainment, worklessness and addiction. Under his plans, the old measurement, based on the percentage of households with below-average income, would continue to be published as a government statistic but would no longer be seen as a target. However, peers voted by 290 to 198 to keep the targets, in a move to prompt the House of Commons to think again. [...] [ TRICKLE-DOWN! ] David Freud, the welfare minister, opposed the amendment on behalf of the government, saying “life chances” indicators were a better way of monitoring what was happening and of directing resources most effectively to tackle the problem.

Revealed: the Tories new plan to squeeze the working poor (From Herald Scotland)
[ great picture of IDS. redistribution from bottom to the top. ] THE TORY government been attacked over plans to extend controversial benefit sanctions to claimants with jobs, with critics warning introducing the "shockingly harsh" penalties risks plunging workers into poverty. A number of pilot schemes are currently being carried out in the UK – including in Inverness – to assess a new scheme which the Department of Work and Pensions (DWP) says is aimed at helping workers on low earnings take on more hours and increase their income. Benefits can be stopped if claimants fail to meet requirements outlined by the DWP – such as missing Jobcentre appointments or failing to show evidence of looking for more work for a certain number of hours a week, on top of their usual job.

A day in court showed me the misery of Britain’s housing policy | Polly Toynbee | Opinion | The Guardian
The housing crisis they inherited has worsened as rents rise, but David Cameron and George Osborne’s cuts to social housing are a bizarre response: the housing and planning bill going through parliament marks the end of the social housing era. Not by accident but by deliberate policy, 88,000 council homes to rent will be lost, says the Conservative-controlled Local Government Association. Labour says the total will be 180,000 by 2020. Money is sucked out of social housing into the Treasury, as the 1% rent cut saves on the housing benefit bill by stealing funds due to pay for new social homes. Half of all renters get some housing benefit, with the continuous rise in rents. Cutting that support simply propels more into homelessness.

Aberdeen and Edinburgh highlighted in city economies report - BBC News
No Scottish cities were in the top 10 for "low-wage, high-welfare" economies. The 2016 report - described as a "health check" for the 63 largest UK cities - focused on Chancellor George Osborne's vow to build a "higher wage, lower welfare" economy, as set out in the Summer Budget 2015. >> It argued that nearly a million new jobs had been created in cities since 2010 - but that the average salary had also dropped by £1,300 per resident. 'High-wage, low-welfare' << [...] The think tank said the two areas' ability to attract high-skilled jobs - in the oil and professional services industries for example - was the key to their success. It argued that cities with high wages had seen faster jobs growth, with employment rising by 10% since 2010, compared with 3% in low-wage cities. [...] [ Housing Crisis across the country thus ] increased housing benefit payments.

Food banks have become a lifeline for many, but where is the way out? | Patrick Butler | Society | The Guardian
Back in September 2012, however, when Bestwood and Bulwell food bank opened, Webster did not expect to be hugely busy, confidently believing it could be “run out of a cupboard”. What happened next was terrifying: the initial trickle of referrals turned into a flood, triggered by what Webster calls “downright poverty”. After a year, volunteers were “on their knees” (though they are on their feet again now, he adds), battered not only by the sheer weight of demand, but by the shocking specificity of the deprivation and injustice they encountered: the food bank client who was sanctioned by the jobcentre (had her benefits stopped) for not attending a job search interview even though she told them she was in hospital having chemotherapy; a woman client who asked if the food bank gave out tampons; she had no money and had been forced to use newspaper instead. It troubles him that so much of their work is, on the face of it, due to avoidable failures in state provision, ...

Tory MPs in 71 marginal seats at risk from cuts to tax credits | Politics | The Guardian
George Osborne has come under fresh pressure to halt controversial cuts to tax credits as new research shows that 71 Tory MPs in marginal seats could be vulnerable to a backlash from families hit by dramatic falls in their incomes. The impact of the cuts, which will leave 3.2 million families worse off by an average of £1,300 a year from next April, is already causing concern among Conservative MPs and ministers, who believe they will punish precisely the kind of working families David Cameron claims to represent. [...] The House of Commons library has found that some families could lose up to £3,000 a year if the tax credit cuts are not reversed. // &! bit.ly/1RPnKjW - With six million people not earning enough to cover the basic cost of living, tackling in-work poverty is crucial,

More jobs paying below living wage - BBC News
'Prevalent' low pay The ONS figures show that the proportion of jobs paying below the living wage has grown. In 2014, young adults were most likely to be paid less than the living wage. Some 58% of jobs carried out by 18 to 24-year-olds outside of London and 48% of jobs in this age group in London were paid less than the living wage. In accommodation and food services in 2014, an estimated 65% of jobs paid less than the living wage in London and 70% in the rest of the UK. Northern Ireland had 29% of jobs paying below the living wage, the highest in the country. At the other end of the scale, 19% of jobs in the South East of England, London and Scotland paid below the living wage. [...] "These figures demonstrate that while the economy may be recovering as a whole, there is a real problem with ensuring everyone benefits, and low pay in still prevalent in Britain today."

How The Socialist Surge is Growing - YouTube
via Robert Reich on.fb.me/1Pn6XFK - According to a New York Times investigation reported this morning, just 358 families and the businesses they control have contributed over half the money to the 2016 presidential election so far – mostly to Republicans who have pledged to pare regulations; cut taxes on income, capital gains and inheritances; and shrink Social Security and Medicare. On the other hand, two-thirds of Americans support higher taxes on those earning $1 million or more a year, according to a June New York Times/CBS News poll, and six in 10 favor more government intervention to reduce the gap between the rich and the poor. And according to the Pew Research Center, nearly seven in 10 favor preserving Social Security and Medicare benefits as they are. To an extent we haven’t seen since the Gilded Age of the 1890s, the upcoming election is between a tiny group of super-rich and the rest of us. We must do everything possible to reclaim our democracy.

There’s nothing good about the rise in zero-hours contracts – ban them now | Peter Fleming | Comment is free | The Guardian
Yet the growing trend, which British employers love, is steadily eroding what used to be called “stable jobs”. We are not just talking about teenage fast-food employees or the struggling artist who lands a call-centre gig to tide them over. Universities and the NHS are among those who have embraced this onward march of workplace rationalisation. [...] Studies looking at the effects of economic insecurity are poignant here. According to some behavioural economists there is no doubt that the endless worry caused by economic uncertainty impedes the body’s immune system and you get sick more. But it also starts to mess with your ability to reason. People start making bad decisions. A bad situation can easily get worse. [...] Zero-hours contracts help to subsidise rich corporations and businesses. [...] phase neoliberalism, with its plutocrats, oligarchs and rentiers back in full swing. [...] But as an astute economist recently put it, we can no longer afford the rich.

Number of workers on zero-hours contracts up by 19% | UK news | The Guardian
Office for National Statistics says number of people reporting that they work on contracts with no minimum hours has risen to 744,000 [...] “The effect of zero-hours contracts on market behaviour and outcomes is thus likely to be greater than their incidence might suggest.” He also said that more employers would stop offering full-time permanent contracts to avoid paying the steep rise in the national living wage for the over-25s that comes into force next April. “In an otherwise very lightly regulated UK labour market the forthcoming large hike in the minimum wage when the national living wage (NVL) is introduced next year might act as a further incentive to employers to increase their use of zero-hours contracts – which are already very prevalent in sectors where the NVL will bite hardest - in order to minimise the impact on total labour costs.” [ study shows ppl are worse of, much more worse off ] &!

Elizabeth Warren: No Need to Stop Uber-ized Workforce, but Must Invest in Education (Video) | Re/code
Warren defends Uber-ization of labor // Elizabeth Warren, the Massachusetts senator denounced by some as a “far-left” socialist radical, came out in support of the “Uber-ization” of the labor force. “We’re not going to stop tech so that lots of people will work,” Sen. Warren said at yesterday’s Code Conference. “That’s like saying, ‘Let’s get rid of heavy equipment and let people dig with a spoon.'” // "how the on-demand economy is creating full-time jobs out of part-time work. Several startups, like Uber, rely on contract employers. Google CEO Larry Page has predicted that part-time working will soon be the norm." // marketplace lowers prices! its inevitable. Except there is regulation and a guaranteed income /w around minimum wage. // Wall Street - Capitalism - rootless global corporations (& money have no conscience) has no self-limiter. Is no stakeholder in a local economy has no shared economic interest whether in a local economy nor country. // on.recode.net/1eAwEE0

Richest 1,000 Have More Wealth Than Poorest 40 Per Cent | The Equality Trust
This year it finds that the richest 1,000 people have more wealth (£547 billion) than the poorest 40% of households (£452 billion). Last year they saw their wealth increase by a staggering £28.151 billion, the equivalent of £77 million a day, or £893 a second.  // taxing earning through capital gains and taxing capital and assets is lower than taxing work. privileged send their kids to private schools while tax payer might not get their kids into a school nearby because of the austerity on education policy of conservative-libdem coalition. and if, then the class sizes it 29 or bigger.

Autumn Statement 2014: Osborne's Cuts 'Will See Public Spending Fall To Lowest Level In 80 Years'
Tony Dolphin, senior economist at the Institute for Public Policy and Research, warned that Osborne's planned cuts were "implausible". "Given the scale of cuts in the public sector, [the OBR] can only make its growth forecast add up by assuming that consumer demand is boosted by households taking on more debt - and at an unprecedented pace. "Extraordinarily, the OBR thinks that by 2019 the household sector will have a financial deficit twice as big as in 2007 and 2008 when the financial crisis hit. As result, the household debt-to-income ratio is forecast 2 rise beyond its pre-crisis peak 2 over 180%. "This is pretty implausible. If the next government tries 2 follow the deficit reduction path set out in the Autumn Statement, it can only succeed in the short-term because the household sector takes on debt @ a faster pace than it did before the financial crisis. [this warning was heeded some years ago alrdy that consumer&corp would have to take on debt to spend to keep GDP # up!!!]
