The Government has hit some of the country’s most vulnerable families with the Bedroom Tax. Cuts for legal aid have kicked in, making it harder for poor people to get justice. And the Government’s tax cut for millionaires has begun – with 13,000 millionaires getting a £100,000 tax cut.
But that’s not enough for this Government. We have found out that they’re coming after the Minimum Wage too. They have ordered the Low Pay Commission to consider freezing, or even cutting, the National Minimum Wage, if the economy doesn’t pick up. Workers earning the lowest legal wage could be paying the price for this Government’s failed economic policies.
TULO have launched an urgent petition calling on the Government to drop this plan, and promise to protect the minimum wage. Please take a moment to add your name and encourage others to do the same by going to http://www.unionstogether.org.uk/protecttheminimumwage
