Reduce Inequality and Increase Trust in Bristol
There is a simple way to reduce inequality and increase trust, which the majority of the population want-
The council should pay its staff, and require the same in its contractual arrangements, on a ratio of 1:10 or less, so that if the lowest pay is £15k, the highest is no more than £150k.
Why the contribution is important
More equal societies are more trusting, with better education and health outcomes, and less crime.
Unless we do this, all the other good ideas will not work.
This would be an achievable, and small start towards greater equality. Come on George, you can do this.
