WATCH THE VIDEOWATCH THE VIDEO

Over 220,000 of us – including you William – are calling for the unfair pay cap to be scrapped completely. [2] The news this week proves our pressure is working – Theresa May has agreed to pay our police and prison workers better. But she’s not yet agreed to give everyone working in our public services like our nurses and teachers a fair pay rise. [3]

If each one of us reading this email watches and shares the video William, Theresa May won’t be able to hide behind confusing headlines any longer. It’ll mean that more and more of us can turn up the pressure on the government, and convince them to pay our nurses and firefighters properly.So will you share the video with your friends and family, so they can know the truth behind the headlines too?WATCH & SHARE

Thanks for all you do,

Cathy, Holly, Bex, Aiyan and the 38 Degrees Team

[3] On Wednesday the government announced that police and prison officers will receive pay rises above the 1% pay cap, and said there would be “more flexibility” in how pay is set for some other professions covered by the cap. But they haven’t made any firm commitment to raise the pay of nurses, teachers, firefighters and everyone else working for our public services. Read more here:
