Tens of thousands of people from across the country will gather in central London tomorrow to demand better conditions for workers.
The TUC organized the march to signal to the government that more needs to be done to tackle the cost of living crisis.
This week the Mirror reported on how hard life has become for so many households.
We spoke to an NHS worker who has to walk six miles to work because he can no longer afford a car.
We visited food banks that had turned people away because they were running out of supplies.
And we spoke to a disabled woman who can’t afford a shower because her heating bill has almost doubled.
Tomorrow’s demonstration will be a chance to give these people a voice.
Those gathering will speak for the four million children who live in poverty, the millions of people in low-paid and insecure work, and the carers, cleaners and many other workers who desperately need a raise.
The government should not only listen to their call, but respond to it.

Gatwick Airport’s decision to reduce the number of flights over the summer is not being taken lightly.
If the sector is desperate to recoup the losses it has suffered during the pandemic, cancellations will eat away at its profits.
However, Gatwick operators argue the reduction will prevent a repeat of the disruption seen over the anniversary weekend.
Passengers affected by the decision will understandably be upset and many will wonder why the industry wasn’t better prepared for the inevitable rush to international travel once Covid restrictions were lifted.
It’s a gamble..
