What do you do in your job all day?

0:00:100:00:13

I try to help people.

0:00:130:00:15

But my favourite thing, my absolute favourite thing to do is to

0:00:150:00:19

make sure that kids like you get the best possible chance in life.

0:00:190:00:22

That's my number-one priority and that's what my party stands for.

0:00:220:00:26

Why is there a Labour Party?

0:00:260:00:29

To help people. To help working people.

0:00:290:00:31

We want everybody in the country to have a decent job.

0:00:310:00:34

But if you're going to get a decent job,

0:00:340:00:36

you have to get a decent education, right?

0:00:360:00:38

So we've got to make sure we spend lots of money on schools so that

0:00:380:00:41

when you leave school you can get the job that you want to have.

0:00:410:00:44

What are you going to be when you grow up?

0:00:440:00:46

In charge of Doctor Who.

0:00:460:00:48

In charge of Doctor Who?! That's a great job!

Will I get paid the same amount of money as Lucas when I grow up?

0:01:000:01:04

Well, if you were grown-up now, no.

0:01:040:01:07

For every pound that you'd earn, you'd only get 89 pence.

0:01:070:01:10

So that's unfair, that's 11 pence difference just because

0:01:100:01:13

he's a boy and you're a girl. So I'm going to work to change that.

0:01:130:01:16

I'm going to make sure that in the future, boys and girls will earn

0:01:160:01:19

the same amount of money for the same job that they do.

0:01:190:01:21

Is your job really hard?

0:01:210:01:23

Sometimes it's hard, but all the time it's really, really exciting.

0:01:240:01:28

It's an absolute privilege to do what I do,

0:01:280:01:30

but it's my job to make sure the government do the right thing.

0:01:300:01:33

And the Scottish Parliament's got lots of powers,

0:01:330:01:35

and more powers are coming to the Scottish Parliament, so if we want

0:01:350:01:39

to, we can make Scotland a fairer and better place for everyone.

0:01:390:01:42

What job do you think I might do when I'm older?

0:01:420:01:46

You could be absolutely anything that you want to be,

0:01:470:01:50

whether that's an engineer or a computer coder -

0:01:500:01:53

somebody who makes computer games - a writer, an athlete, a doctor

0:01:530:01:57

or a scientist.

0:01:570:01:59

And if you can't do any of those things, you can be a politician!

0:01:590:02:03

Scottish Labour is changing, and under my leadership there'll be no

0:02:030:02:07

doubt what the Scottish Labour Party stands for and who we stand with.

0:02:070:02:11

I believe in the potential of every single child in Scotland

0:02:110:02:14

and I want them to get on in life,

0:02:140:02:15

I want them to achieve that potential

0:02:150:02:17

and I want it to be determined by their talent, their potential

0:02:170:02:20

and how hard they work,

0:02:200:02:21

not how much their parents earn or what school they went to.

0:02:210:02:25

I want every single child in Scotland

0:02:300:02:31

to have the best possible start in life.
