Labour will deliver the pay rise Scotland needs

5th November 2018

Today the Living Wage Foundation has announced new rates for the voluntary real living wage, at £9 per hour.

Too many people in Scotland are earning less than the real living wage. It’s almost half a million at 467,000, and it increased by 30,000 in the past year.

Labour has a plan to deliver the payrise Scotland needs, including:

Lifting the national minimum wage to a £10 per hour real living wage by 2020.

A ban on zero hour contracts.

An interventionist industrial strategy to deliver high wage, high skill jobs.

Trade Union and collective bargaining at the heart of economic growth.

Equalising rights for workers in the gig economy.
