The UK’s National Minimum Wage has been an undoubted success. But as concern about low pay has gained momentum, the settlement designed 15 years ago has struggled to keep pace. For the past nine months, the Resolution Foundation has been hosting a review of the future of the minimum wage under the chairmanship of Professor Sir George Bain, the founding chair of the Low Pay Commission. At this event, james Plunkett announced the review’s recommendations for a broader, more far-sighted and more assertive minimum wage policy fit for the challenges we face today.

Speakers:
James Plunkett - Director of Policy, Resolution Foundation
Paul Gregg - Director, Centre for Analysis and Social Policy at the University of Bath
Nicola Smith - Head of Economic and Social Policy, TUC
Paul Kirby - Partner at KPMG and former Head of Number 10 Policy Unit
