A Gimmick Wage not a Living Wage

£10 per hour. It's not pie in the sky


The minimum wage should be increased to £10 per hour so that working people do not have to be supported with benefits, says the Bakers Food and Allied Workers Union (BFAWU).

It wants the practice employed by large corporations to cut pay and force workers to rely on state handouts to be brought to an end.

By making work pay and providing a living wage, five million people would be lifted out of poverty and the ballooning benefit bill would be reduced, says the union.

The money saved could then be diverted to help fund the NHS and improve communities.
