Commenting on today’s GDP figures, which show that the economy grew by just 0.4% across the 3 months from March to May 2022, TUC General Secretary Frances O’Grady said:

“With growth still slow, the government must not allow the cost of living crisis to become a slippery slope towards recession.

"An economy can only grow if people keep spending. But with prices surging, spending is falling fast, and Conservative ministers are attacking workers who ask for a decent pay rise.

“Inflation is already at 9 percent and rising. Working people need a genuine cost of living increase to keep up. The next Prime Minister must put real wage growth ahead of tax cuts for the wealthy.”
