After yesterdays economic data the one thing that is now very obvious is that the UK needs a pay rise.
Low pay is unsustainable.
Poor quality jobs are only encouraged by low pay.
Inequality is fostered.
Investment in people and infrastructure is discouraged.
A cycle of negativity is created.
We need people to be paid enough to sustain themselves.
We need to stop subsidising big business to create poverty.
We need to increase the minimum wage, significantly.
We need to do it now.
