Second, no one knows who will get the wage increases. For the under 25s they might be a disaster. For immigrant labour they might be great news. For 26 year olds they’re almost certain to spell unemployment and poverty just as they might have the responsibilities of childcare arriving.
I assume that minimum wages imposed by a Tory are different from minimum wages imposed by anyone else. Can’t think what other reason there could be for the change of heart.
You can’t build productivity by forcing wages up and more into unemployment that you are unwilling to support.
Really is a change of heart, isn’t it?
