‘This year marks the tenth anniversary of Labour passing the National Minimum Wage Act. It remains one of the government’s proudest achievements having benefited millions of people.
Almost everyone who works in the UK is legally entitled to be paid the National Minimum Wage – that includes people employed permanently, by an agency, part-time workers, casual workers, or people on a short-term contract.’
Note that the Conservative/ Lib Dem Collation position has not been what Labour predicted, and they have supported the Low Pay Commission’s call for clarification of NMW when hiring performers. This Actorsminimumwage posting covers the coallition announcement from late June 2010.
