Indeed, those agitating for an increase in the minimum wage will get something in the manifesto, Miliband insists. When asked about immigration and whether the government has done enough, he insists that perceptions of immigration as being a bad thing stem from people’s belief that immigrants have a downward effect on wages. “Tougher enforcement of the national minimum wage,” he says, could be the answer to public disquiet around levels of immigration. “People want to know that you are going to ensure that people on low wages share in the prosperity of the country and it is important that we find ways in which we do that.”
