This man doesn\’t know what he\’s talking about:
including the hyper-rich non-doms who pay no tax at all
Eh? Non-doms pay exactly the same taxes on their UK incomes as anyone else does. Not knowing that means everything else he says is highly suspect, don\’t you think?
Money is power, too, so raising the minimum wage, currently just £5.52 an hour, to at least £7 in the first instance would empower many with little opportunities.
A good example: minimum wages have bad effects as well as good, and the bad effects become dominant if the minimum is too high. Setting the UK minimum at around the US average hourly wage would, in my humble opinion, be high enough that we\’d see a great deal more of the bad effects.
