Why the National Living wage is not really a living wage at all

This is Simon.

Simon works at Perfect Pies Plc.

He is 26.

He will qualify for the National Living Wage when it is introduced in April next year.

But the “National Living Wage” is only £7.20 per hour.

Not enough to live on.

Especially when introduced alongside cuts to in-work benefits.

Which prop up low wages.

But it’s not all bad news.

The National Living Wage is going to rise to £9.35.

In 2020.

The National Living Wage is not really a living wage at all.

£10 an hour. It’s not pie in the sky.
