Youth workers in Oxfordshire struck on Tuesday of last week.

It was their third strike against council plans to slash youth service provision.

Some workers have already been made redundant. Others have been moved to other jobs.

The council is slashing youth service funding from £3.7 million to £1.4 million.

It now spends less than one pence per day on each young person.

Council leader Keith Mitchell said recently, “Margaret Thatcher is my political hero in almost all respects.”

Strikers rallied in front of County Hall in Oxford, and drove around town with a megaphone gathering support.
