Commenting on new figures released today (Monday) by the Treasury showing that Brexit would cost £4,300 a year per household for the next fifteen years, TUC General Secretary Frances O’Grady said:
“Today’s figures are a sobering reality check. For working people the message is clear: vote leave, get poorer.
“Brexit campaigners have yet to come up with any convincing answers for how a post-Brexit economy would function. They have nothing to offer but a future of lower pay and fewer jobs.
“They would rather divide and distract voters than come clean about the dangers of leaving the European Union.”
