Demand a £10 per hour National Living Wage

Raise the National Living Wage to £10 per hour.

Why is this important?

Having a job should guarantee your family doesn't live in poverty.

But right now that's not the case. Millions of working people are trapped in low paying, insecure work with no path out.

Not only is the percentage of those in poverty living in a working household at its highest since records began, but so is the percentage of children from working households living in poverty.

Theresa May might think this is fine, but we don't.

That's why on the 20th anniversary of the minimum wage, I'm calling on the Prime Minister to lift the minimum wage to at least £10 per hour and give a pay rise to 4 million people.


Reasons for signing

  • its time poverty in work is stopped remember it was the Torys who voted against the minimum wage and now its here are claiming a victory with there £8.20 for over 25s its a joke
  • Because we work for pennys in todays day and age. Im personally a support worker for people with very complex needs and as much as i love this job and would never give it up the pay is a joke
  • I work as a sen teaching assistant. As you can imagine some days are hard. But made harder when you overhear students discuss that they earn more per hour in their weekend jobs than you do. Time for proper recognition - especially in predominantly female rolls - of the tough jobs we do
