Include under 25s in the National Living Wage & adopt the real living wage.
This petition had 2,144 supporters
The Government's National Living Wage is currently set at £7.50/hour for people aged 25 & over. However this doesn't apply to under 25s, some of whom can be on wages as low as £5.60/hour.
We call on the Government to:
- Include under 25s
- Adopt the real living wage (£10.20 in London, £8.75 in the rest of the UK)
As the Living Wage Week highlighted last week, British workers have been worse off over the last 7 years. We believe that workers in Britain deserve a proper wage rise. With the Chancellor preparing to announce his first budget of this Parliament, we must put pressure on the Government to adopt the real living wage released by the Living Wage Foundation. A report released by KPMG highlighted that 5.5 million people still earn less than the real Living Wage rates.
If you believe that all workers deserve a fair day’s pay for a fair day’s work, please sign this petition.
