George Osborne calls for rise in minimum wage
James KirkupGeorge Osborne has called for a significant rise in the minimum wage to compensate low-income workers for the economic crisis.
Pushing up wages will “make sure that we have a recovery for all and that work pays,” the Chancellor said in a move apparently aimed at Labour voters.
It comes days after Ed Miliband, the Labour leader, said he would “rescue the middle classes”.
Mr Osborne’s support for higher wages last night drew warnings from business groups that increasing employers’ costs could result in job losses and hamper the economic recovery.
