Ensure nobody on furlough receives less than Minimum wage
Ensure that all employees on furlough receive no less than the minimum wage (MW). Employees on MW should receive their full wage and any employees above MW should receive no less than MW.
Under the furlough scheme minimum wage workers, many of whom already struggle to get by on their full wage, have still had their wages reduced to 80%. For example a worker aged 25+ being paid the £8.72 MW would see this reduced to £6.98. This risks increasing poverty and should not be allowed.
If you want to sign this petition (as opposed to merely discuss it), you need to do that on the government's e-Petitions website.
