  • Raise the minimum wage to £8 an hour – helping alleviate the high cost of living in Aberdeen – and end exploitative zero hour contracts.
  • Scrap the bedroom tax – only voting for Labour will achieve this.
  • A guaranteed job, training or apprenticeship for unemployed young people – funded by a tax on Bankers’ Bonuses.
  • 1,000 extra nurses in Scotland – a Labour government would fund this by implementing a UK mansion tax. An additional £100 million frontline fund for A&E.
  • Tackle the oil price crisis – a resilience fund to protect Aberdeen jobs against current and future shocks.
