Monday, April 10, 2017

Jeremy Corbyn is to promise a pay rise to nearly six million workers if the Labour Party is elected in the 2020 vote.

In a speech on his visit to Luton, the Labour Leader is to outline his promise as an attempt to win over voters with a pay increase to £10 per hour on the minimum wage. 

He is expected to say: "Low pay blights huge and growing numbers and fuels widening inequality.

"The Government re-brand to the national living wage hasn't dealt with the real problems of low pay, the rising cost of living.

"Labour will raise minimum wage to £10 an hour by 2020, allocating millions of people a pay rise in the process.

"A Labour Government will be committed to re-balancing our economy, so no one is left behind."
