Make the National Living Wage standard for 18 - 25 year olds
Britain's youth are being exploited, with the cost of universities also rising there needs to be a viable alternative to higher education. This is a petition to give people the wage they work for without prejudice against age. A modern society should be free from institutionalised agism.
The classic arguments against increasing the minimum wage for those under 25 are null.
"To encourage young people to stay in education" - Most people finish an undergraduate course aged 23 or under. Are they not worthy of a 'living wage' ?
"Younger people may be under skilled" - So could a 50 year old. Replace this broken system with an "introductory wage" forcing employers to raise the wage a certain amount of time on lower pay, while the employee gains the skills needed.
