Today I spoke at the living wage foundation parliamentary event which brought together MPs from across the political spectrum and employers to support a real living wage.
A real living wage is now more important than ever. Living costs are spiralling, wages are stagnant and too many people are stuck in insecure work with low pay.
A society that sees many in work being forced to use food banks is a national scandal!
A future Labour government will ensure that all workers are paid a real living wage of £10 per hour by 2020 and we will support employers to do this.
It's time to give Britain the pay rise that it deserves.
