Not Working

Tuesday 23rd October, 2018, shall go down as a day of infamy. 

In Glasgow, 8,000 workers went on strike over equal pay for women. It’s unclear whether this was 8,000 women or 8,000 men and women combined. Either way, how do so-called “cash strapped” councils manage to have so many so-called “workers”? 

The city of Glasgow has a population of around half a million which, by international standards, makes it a large town. Yet they’ve got a minimum of 8,000 people working for them. The last time London had a population of half a million was back in the late 1600s – how many people worked for their version of a council back then? – Who knows, it wasn’t 8,000 though.
