Britain's youth are hardest hit by low pay and poor working conditions, Young Communist League general secretary Zoe Hennessy said yesterday.
She told the Communist Party of Britain congress that young people were being disproportionately hit by the proliferation of an economy based on low-paid and insecure work.
Ms Hennessy chronicled a depressing landscape made up of a million people going to foodbanks amid insecure work conditions that have put 1.5 million people on zero-hours contracts with a huge drop in the number of workers covered by collective agreements.
"It is up to communists to make the case for socialism. The enemy is not invincible," she said, urging the need to build the Communist Party and trade union movement.
"The only credible alternative to the barbarous situation we find ourselves in is socialism," she said.
"The ruling class know this, but it is time that the working class knows this too."
