TWO news stories in your paper (The Yorkshire Post, August 30) made me smile. Page 1. Yorkshire millionaires soar by one-third. Page 4. Wages fall costs staff £1,000 over year. Are the two facts connected?
Well, yes, they are.
Extortionate incomes of company directors depend on inflated prices and depressed labour costs. It is called capitalism – the system we all live under. Contrary to your editorial, it is not something that can be resolved under capitalism because it is integral to it. We do not need a profit system but a society dedicated to meeting individual and society’s needs. That’s called world socialism.
