last 20 years, bottom 50% of earners – their wages either stayed the same or went backwards …

Labour were in office for nine of the last twenty years, so what is Andrew saying?
Is he saying that the last Labour Government (which he was President of the party for) failed to lift wages for low income workers?
Or is he saying that the EPMU, which he was the head of, failed to lift wages for their members?
