David Cameron will urge businesses to give their workers a pay rise when he speaks to the British Chamber of Commerce.
With oil and energy prices falling, along with economic growth at its highest for seven years, Mr Cameron feels that “Put simply – it’s time Britain had a pay rise”.
However, not everybody is impressed. Unite general secretary Len McCluskey called on the government to “immediately” boost the minimum wage by at least £1.50 an hour.
While TUC General Secretary believes that this is all “pre election mood music” and that the public sector will not benefit at all from the proposed plan.
“There are nurses, midwives and public sector midwives across the board who will find it a bit rich that the government is calling for a pay rise for everybody but them,”
