One of Labour's greatest achievements in Government was the introduction of the National Minimum Wage in 1999. This alone helped over 1.5million people. But we know we can do more!
A Labour UK Government elected in May would introduce the Living wage across the whole of the UK - but there is something that can be done just now. The SNP Scottish Government could make paying, the Living Wage a condition of all Scottish Government contracts - but have voted against doing so...TWICE!
What will Labour do?
UK Labour is committed to introducing the Living Wage UK-wide in the next Parliament.
Scottish Labour will continue to call on the SNP to support the Living Wage condition, and will introduce it if elected in 2016.
Labour is the party of the Living Wage.
