Unpaid work is work. Scotland’s carers work outrageously hard and save the public purse millions every year. But they are paid a pittance, and most get nothing.
We will end this injustice by ensuring all carers receive the living wage, paid for by the state.
Recent cuts to care services by local councils have left disabled people without real choice. We believe these services should be restored and fully funded through progressive taxation to allow all citizens to live with dignity.
