Thursday 13 March 2014 Jobs, Skills and Pay

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.
