UK singer/songwriter, Billy Bragg has always been a strong advocate of workers rights and while he was touring down under, he leant a voice to the campaigns of two IUF affiliates. The SFWU in New Zealand have launched a “Living Wage” campaign to put pressure on employers and Government to pay workers a sufficient amount to afford the necessities of life. Billy turned up at Real Groovy Records in Auckland to show support and perform a couple of songs. Next stop, Melbourne Australia, where the troubador demonstrated support for the NUW “Jobs You Can count On” campaign to reverse the rising tide of insecure work. Billy Bragg performed two songs for NUW members gathered on the steps of Southern Cross Station.
