In todays #DailyOutrage we discuss Australian unions, Honduras factory conditions and the UK economy.

The Australian trade unions don’t think that the Coalition Government can be trusted with workers rights. The ACTU have released survey results which highlight that 50% of voters believe that Abbott will make it harder to be represented by a union at work. The unions have asked for commitments from the Coalition that workers pay and conditions won’t be cut.

We also look at the appalling conditions which workers are being subjected to in Honduras. Whereby, pregnant women are now ‘choosing’ to wear diapers so they can avoid toilet breaks. Management have also been accused of installing video cameras in the toilets to see what employees are up to and how long they take on these breaks.

Lastly, we look at the UK economy and the 0.3% increase in growth and how the Welsh assembly passed a law which would have reinstated the power to set pay after the Agricultural Wages Board of England and Wales was abolished. Unfortunately the UK Coalition government stopped this law from being passed.
