One Year Of The Salford Star Why The Salford Star Exists.

While the fight for Deputy Leader of the Labour Party was in full flow earlier this year, one of the candidates, John Cruddas, got it spot on when he said that the Government is stoking an `hourglass economy' where 20% of the workforce are in high skilled, high-tech careers, while the majority work in low paid, insecure, service sector jobs…"We've become pre-occupied with the top of this glass and forgotten those at the bottom" he said.  He could have been talking about everything that's going on in Salford.
