Austerity Uncovered - STUC Highlands and Islands Conference 2013

This year, the STUC's annual Highlands and Islands Conference included an Austerity Uncovered panel during which a number of trade unionists articulated the impact of spending and benefit cuts, job losses and falling real wages on themselves, their families, workplaces and communities.

The slides which introduced the session highlighted the relative impact on the area's labour market and the extent of asuterity's failure on wages, growth and the public finances.
