Kate Ramsden, Vice President of the ATUC said, "We are encouraging our delegates, associates and affiliated unions to join this very important lobby. We said from the start that austerity would not work. That it would hit the poorest hardest while those that caused the financial crisis, the bankers and the fat cats would carry on business and bonuses as usual. And we were right.
"That inequality would increase, that more children would grow up in poverty with their parents reliant on food banks to survive. And we were right.
"That the Government's policies would create a low wage economy that would reduce tax receipts and cut the money people had to spend in their local shops and businesses and that as a result the economic recovery would be much much slower. And we were right.
"Please come along and hold the Lib Dems accountable for their actions in Government."
