Demonstration in Wales Today

UNISON is organizing a demonstration in Wales today on behalf of government workers in response to job losses and wage cuts. According to the article linked above, a union spokesman had this to say: 
Refuse collectors, social workers, carers, cleaners, teaching assistants, environmental health workers, caterers, town planners, administrators, school crossing patrol workers, caretakers, school cooks, nursery nurses, library staff and the many other local government workers deserve to be paid fairly in recognition of the vital work that they do.
 But instead, increasing numbers are struggling to make ends meet, are experiencing in-work poverty, and are forced into taking out payday loans and visiting food banks.
