This is partly because over the last decade, our water companies have paid out £18bn in dividends to their shareholders.
This is nothing more than a tax on every family which has cost the average household £750 over this period. Instead of this money being used to improve our water infrastructure or to pay better wages to people working in the industry, it has gone directly into the pockets of a wealthy few.
Moreover, the executives of the nine water companies have been paid out over £58m over the past five years! Enough is enough.
This is why the GMB have launched a campaign to put Britain's water industry back in public hands, which Jeremy Corbyn signed up to at Congress on 6th June
