Being A Mom
You just wish sometimes that people would treat you like a human being rather than seeing your gender first and who you are second.
Voting to go on strike is not a decision working people take lightly and is always accompanied by a strong sense of injustice at work. The impact of losing a day's pay is significant, not least for those in the lowest paid jobs who are already on the tightest budgets.
The dominant economic approach of the last thirty years is now on its last legs. Letting the market rip and an indifference to inequality are now seen as important causes of the greatest economic crash since the 1930s.
The difficulty for the Government is there's this ideological straitjacket of the market will provide, let the market rip and everything will work out... It's back to trickle-down economics, which, it's plain to see, have not delivered.
My impression is that most women public service workers have a long fuse. Precisely because they care so deeply about services, more than anyone, they still want to find a sensible and fair negotiated agreement. But their patience has run out.
It is not natural or inevitable that half the world goes hungry; that the freedom of markets trumps protection of the planet; or that citizens' rights come second to those of corporations.
I want a society that provides decent jobs for those who can work and decent security for those can't.
I worry that some politicians still think we are living in the 1950s where the man is the main breadwinner and the woman works for pin money. Actually, most families where there are two parents depend on two incomes to get by.
I suspect there are people in all walks of life who need to be dragged into the 21st century in terms of attitudes towards women.
I think being a mother helps keep your feet on the ground. There's very little dignity in parenthood. It's a great leveler.
Being A Mom quotes
I do know what it's like to worry about bills, I do know what it's like to worry about even finding a child-minder, never mind paying them.
I cherish the creation of public space and services, especially health, housing and the comprehensive education system which dared to give so many of us ideas 'above our station.'
I am a feminist and I have no problems being called that.
Governments of all stripes want to deliver growth and re-balance their economies now that they have learned the hard way that, left to their own devices, markets pick expensive banking losers.
From the ashes of a financial crash, there is a chance to create a new economic settlement that is more equal, sustainable and democratic.
Britain is a textbook case of how growing inequality leads to economic crisis. The years before the crash were marked by a sharp rise in remortgaging and the growth of 0 percent balance transfer credit cards. By 2008 the UK had the highest ratio of household debt to GDP of any major economy.
As long as the number one worry for people, keeping them up at nights, is whether they're going to have a job in the morning, then they are less likely to resist unfair changes, or unfair treatment, or cuts in real pay at work.
Although there's a lot of focus on the Lib Dems, we need to keep our eyes on the far right of the Tories, who I suspect will become increasingly impatient in their appetite for tax cuts, deregulation and shrinking the state even further.
All the evidence shows very clearly that if you are a member of a trade union you are likely to get better pay, more equal pay, better health and safety, more chance to get training, more chance to have conditions of work that help if you have caring responsibilities... the list goes on!
A business is good if it gives a decent day's reward for a decent day's work, treats people decently, and gives them a voice at the top.
