Compass Youth proudly supports the Tate Modern Living Wage Action, taking place on 14 December and organised by the LSE Citizens for Social Justice.
Despite spending £200 million on an expansion programme and £250,000 on a crack in the floor to represent the gap between the rich and the poor, the Tate Modern does not pay its cleaning staff a living wage! After the success of Living Wage actions at the LSE and Citigoup we feel that the Tate is an ideal place to continue the campaign, due its status as a key London landmark and its proximity to LSE's Bankside Halls.There will be a protest at the Tate Modern on Friday the 14th of December to put pressure on its Directors to grant all its staff a Living Wage of £7.20 an hour.
Please come along to support the campaign and help get a step closer to a Living Wage London!We will be meeting as a group at LSE at 4.15pm outside the Old Building before heading over to Bankside Halls to pick people up from there. There will a premeeting at Christchurch, Blackfriar's Road, SW1 at 4.30pm.
The Action will be at the Tate modern from 5.30pm. If is important that you come to the pre-meeting if at all possible. It should be finished by 6pm, so you will have plenty of time to fit it in before some end of term drinking.If you would like more info on the Living Wage Campaign you can visit http://www.livingwage.org.uk/
