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

  • I support a proper living wage in this country. A decent minimum amount for workers to prevent disadvantage and a poverty lifestyle.
  • To save our fire station
  • Brexit will make things even worse. We are destined to be the sweatshop of Europe.
