Crow worked for the rights of genuine labour

BOB Crow believed that all workers should be paid a fair wage and pension for their labours and be accorded safe and comfortable working conditions.

He also believed in the right of workers to withdraw their labour when these conditions were lacking and was therefore hated by right-wing media and politicians.

Yet, what is the bleating excuse of those voices for the scandal of multi-million pound bonuses in the city? "We must not interfere with the sacred rituals of the market or these people will just go somewhere else." In other words, withdraw their labour.
