The Living wage to come into force. 50p increase per hr for workers over the age of 25; in England. http://www.klfm967.co.uk/news/uk-news/1 ... nto-force/
Therefore it will now be £7.50 /hr. The Govt has a target that by 2020 the living wage would be £9 / hr.
The fake and corrupt Govt that we have here in Malta used to speak about this while in opposition.
However nothing has changed! I am 100% sure that the PM will start mentioning it again very soon ... just before the next general elections!
However if I am not mistaken here it would have worked differently; the govt would have been forking out the increase and not the firms...
IMO it should be like that; however it should gradually be devided: 75% - 25%
60% - 40%
50% - 50%
And only after results show a considerable growth that the firms should be taking the whole increase.
