Cabinet votes against helping low paid employees

Quite what low regard Cornwall Council's Tory/Independent administration has for its low paid employees was made clear at today's Council budget meeting.

One part of an amendment being proposed by Mebyon Kernow's Dick Cole stated:

"The potential impact on lower paid employees is actively considered during the negotiations."

There was one honourable exception - Julian German.

The proposed amendment was defeated by 51 votes to 50 in the closest vote of the day.

The Tories care about the low paid... That will be the day.
