As members of 38 Degrees, each one of us helps decide the issues we work on together to make change happen. Knowing what all of us care about is vital.
On Monday morning, the office team sat down with the results of this survey to help decide what’s on the table for the week. Here are the results (1 is the ranked the highest priority and 10 is the lowest):
- Campaign for the NHS to get the funding it needs to give world-class care.
- Campaign for more funding for social care so that the elderly and vulnerable are cared for.
- Campaign to stop welfare cuts that affect the poorest and most vulnerable.
- Campaign to make sure corporations are paying their fair share of tax, and aren’t tax dodging.
- Campaign against changes to disability support (called PIP) which will see people with mental health problems worse off.
- Campaign to protect our bees from habitat destruction and bee-killing pesticides.
- Campaign for a people-powered Brexit plan, prioritising fairness, justice, and the environment.
- Campaign for trade deals after Brexit that benefit everyone, not just big business.
- Campaign to stop employers from exploiting new staff (e.g. asking them to work for free).
- Campaign to stop delivery company Parcelforce making drivers pay £250 if they call in sick.
- Campaign for new rules to help people struggling with debt from payday loan companies, like Wonga.
The poll also checked in on what members think about 38 Degrees’ people-powered Brexit strategy. The question asked was:
“After the EU referendum, 38 Degrees members voted on how to respond to Brexit and its fallout. We decided to draw up a people-powered Brexit plan that priorities fairness, justice and the environment – then campaign as hard as we can to push the debate in the right direction to shape what happens next. Is this still a good idea?”
