Business groups have criticised Labour’s minimum wage target for 2020 – arguing it politicises the process rather than leaving it in the hands of experts.
The Conservatives are already delivering the first above-inflation Minimum Wage rise since Labour’s Great Recession began, something we can only afford because our long-term economic plan is working.
Nobody will take any lectures from Labour on helping people on low pay. By crashing the economy, Labour made everyone poorer.
And they haven’t learnt their lesson. Ed Miliband would make people worse off with the same failed policies that got us into a mess in the first place – more wasteful spending, more borrowing and higher taxes.
Only by sticking to the Conservative plan will we raise hardworking taxpayers’ living standards and secure a better future for Britain, and for our children and grandchildren
