No, most minimum wage jobs are meant to develop experience, not support a family

No. It would kill small businesses in favour of corporations and make it difficult for young people and less qualified people to get a job

Yes, but by a small amount, to eliminate the possibiltiy of price increases.

@97X3Q3K answered…3wks

Increasing the national minimum wage without there being adjustments to income/means tested benefit considerations meant our poorest had much less money coming in. No increase without increasing benefit calculation thresholds.

All job sectors should be allowed to unionised and those unions should negotiate wages.

16_18 year old should get the same money per hour as people who are 21 years of age

For people on lowest incomes, they have a lower rate of tax and thus more tax home pay.

@97K667M answered…1mo

No and abolish minimum wage but companies should be competitive with wages.

@97FTFJT answered…1mo

Minimum wage jobs should only be for jobs that don't require qualifications. If you need a qualification! The job should pay a higher wage.

@97D6T53 answered…1mo

No, we should reform to universal basic income. Jobs should supplement luxury's atop basic living

The government should make benefits lower than the national minimum wage to encourage people to work

@974V27WConservative answered…1mo

No, a government should not have the right to make decisions for businesses

@973PT4R answered…1mo

Yes, and do not allow age to determine how much someone should be paid

@96ZWVGCGreen answered…1mo

Yes, minimum wage should be a liveable wage and corporations would very happily return to slavery if they could, government regulation will also be required but increasing minimum wage alone won’t fix the problem.

I fear that it will only cause prices to increase in a never ending cycle. However, if lots of people are struggling then it may have to be increased and adjusted according to inflation. There are also existing schemes, help from government and other services to help people with cost of living.

@96WFT7C answered…1mo

No, abolish minimum wages because it gives employers an excuse to pay employees minimum wage for important jobs

The minimum wage should be abolished allowing for more negotiation and flexibility during hiring, however the minimum wage should be a company's starting offer. This wage should not be allowed to affect product pricing.

@96R9HSH answered…2mos

It's about right at the moment. The issue is jobs that used to be a lot higher pay than minimum wage being "gobbled up" and now only pay a tiny bit more than working at a Tesco.

@96QCLKQ answered…2mos

@96MWK9X answered…2mos

Yes, should increase by how hard each individual is working and inflation
