A MINIMUM WAGE FOR SCOTLAND THAT LETS US LIVE!

Poverty in Scotland has been on the rise over the past ten years to the point where 8% of citizens are in “persistent poverty”. Now The Scottish government said it was "absolutely committed" to ending poverty and would set out its plan to eradicate child poverty by 2030. Meanwhile, 1,000,000 People are living in poverty, 230,000 Children in poverty and 140,000 Pensioners.
I know raising the minimum wage is just a small part of the problem and it may be difficult for small businesses but surely it’s the ethical thing to do. Keep the minimum wage up to date with inflation and the national living wage because people working 50 hours a week, who still have to go to food banks - Needs to stop. Here’s a link to a site that explains living/minimum wage and why we’re not getting what we’re due: https://www.livingwage.org.uk/what-real-living-wage
It’s the very least we can expect, is it not?
