Advanced Practical Politics exam: Q1
Section A: We posit the theory that to tackle inequality in the UK economy without reliance on the tax and benefits system, we need an emphasis on higher wages and on supporting improved collective bargaining rights by workers and Trade Unions. (reversing what Jacob Hacker calls the “declining organisational might of the middle“).
Section Two: The leading Trade Unions in Britain announce plans for a wave of strikes for higher wages in the public sector.
Your task is to reconcile supporting the theory advanced in (A) while urging restraint on those engaged in (B), without obvious repetition, deviation, obfuscation or evasion.
Note: Distinction will be awarded for answers that employ repetition, deviation, obfuscation and evasion, if not used obviously.
