Raise the National Minumum Wage to a Living Wage
The Living Wage Campaign calls for every worker in the country to earn enough to provide their family with the essentials of life.
Launched by London Citizens in 2001, the campaign has won over £70 million of Living Wages, lifting over 10,000 families out of working poverty.
The Living Wage is a number. An hourly rate, set independently, every year (by the GLA in London). It is calculated according to cost of living and gives the minimum pay rate required for a worker to provide their family with the essentials of life.
In London the current rate is £8.30 per hour.
Outside of London the current rate is £7.20.

I would also like to see the government remove age discrimination in the application of the minimum wage.
