Comment on Is the National Minimum Wage Safe Under a Conservative Government? by s whiteford.

£7.00 should be the absolute minimum..but the question i need answering is why do the tories think its such a good thing having low wages.
if you cant afford to live on £6.00 an hour other people have to pay higher taxes to subsidise the low paid or people who have just given up and never worked.also the more people earn the more taxes they pay does this not benefit the whole of society really the only winners are the tescos,asdas of this world.
but like everything in this country most stories are just pushed about to sell newspapers and yet the real important stuff is buried by the right wing press because they fear us all joining up and fighting against the big companies who make outlandish profits
