Make the minimum wage equal for all
Currently the National Living Wage is set to rise, giving over 23 yr olds a pay rise. However, all under 23s will be missing out on this opportunity purely due to their age. The Minimum Wage should be scrapped and the Living Wage should encompass everyone under 23.
Different rates of pay for different ages is discriminatory. It is set regardless of the job someone does or the experience they may have. I'm sure that they will say that businesses are welcome to pay their employees as much as they want but that would be avoiding the issue all together. Extending the Living Wage would at least give everyone a fair chance.
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.
