MINIMUM WAGE – WARM WORDS BUT COLD REALITY FROM THE GOVERNMENT

Last Thursday saw the monthly departmental questions for Business, Innovation and Skills.  On this occasion I asked Vince Cable about the recent announcements on the National Minimum Wage.

We’ve heard warm words from the Chancellor George Osborne about an increase to £7, but these words have failed to materialise into reality.  It’s clear to me that it was all for political posturing, and was confirmed recently when it was revealed that the Conservatives published a memo for its MPs telling them how to avoid having to pay the minimum wage.
