Tory prime minister Theresa May could ban European Union (EU) migrants from coming to Britain unless they have a job. The family of a much-needed nurse, teacher or construction worker could be barred.

It would create two-tier workplaces, with some workers simply used and then chucked out.

Disgracefully such proposals don’t go far enough for some Tory ministers and backbenchers.

May knows the Tory party is riddled by splits—so she wants to divide our side to push through more austerity.

We have to stand in solidarity with migrants, who feel under threat, and fight for their rights.

Polish migrant Arkadiusz Jozwik died after an attack in Harlow, Essex, on 27 August. Two more migrants were beaten in the town last Sunday.

Only by uniting can we repel the Tory assault.

We should all march on the Tory conference in Birmingham on Sunday 2 October and build the fightback against austerity and racism in our workplaces and colleges.
