Greens support Remploy demo

On Friday Greens supported the demonstration of Remploy workers whose factories are threatened with closure. Green Councillor Rob Murphy, who represents Central ward, said “We would
make sure that people with disabilities in Sheffield and elsewhere have
decent employment opportunities. Remploy provides real work in a supportive
environment for lots of people, and helps them to feel valued and respected.
Closing Remploy down will wreck lives and lead to far greater costs to the
public purse in the future.”
