Minimum Wage

The minimum wage should be set to the same value as the living wage (currently £14,458.50 based on 252 working days of 7.5 hours per day at £7.65), and automatically adjusted in line with that figure.

The minimum wage should be set to the same value as the living wage (currently £15,970.50 based on 252 working days of 7.5 hours per day at £8.45 outside London)[London: £9.75/h, so £18,427.50/year], and automatically adjusted in line with that figure.

Taxation

Investigate possible reforms to the way VAT is applied to goods and services with a view to making it less regressive and, ultimately, to remove the poorest from having to pay entirely. This may require renegotiating our obligations to the EU, which makes VAT compulsory for all member states.

Remove Tampon Tax

Tampons should not be considered a luxury item and should be considered a necessity

Tampons should not be considered a luxury item and should be considered a necessity (other basic hygiene products too)(thinking of toilet paper,soap,shampoo,toothbrush,toothpaste)

Financial Transaction Tax

requirement to register land option agreements, transactions and prices."

Ownership

When you buy something, it should be owned (not a license to use). A preventative measure to reduce risk of vendor lock-in and promote ability to fix and modify purchased products.

  • updated the living wage figure (from outside London, living wage fondation) (also added mention of London figure, hour & year)
  • added to no tax on tampons, other basic hygiene products (in the interest of hygiene in the whole society)

Thanks for updating the figures! There's nothing here I disagree with, but could I ask you to separate it into separate proposals? There's a couple of bits to discuss in each, that I think would be worth doing separately.

How do i separate it now ? ( with this git hub, proposal, which is new to me ) (1. the figures, 2 the addition (of other hygiene products) to no tax on tampons 3 the ownership (man-made) ) ( i think the definition for me of the commons include all natural resources, so Land, that are not human-made, which is why the logical way of specifying ownership as private is to be explicit with qualifying the something to be bought-sold [->transfered to private ownership] as human-made ).

Best way is to go back to the page you edited and do a new suggestion, one for each separate part. Then we can close this one. Does that make sense?

@LudovicD - about 3 years ago

yes, a bit the long way, but i will do that.

done, split, so when the 3 are seen available for vote, we could close this one.
