    B341 - National Minimum Wage Rates Bill 2010, GovernmentAn Act to readjust the national minimum wage to the rate it would have been at if it had grown with inflation since it's initial introduction, so reducing unemployment and aiding the economic recovery and long-run performance. It then creates a tapering of the minimum wage up to the age of 25, to help reduce the problem of youth unemployment. It's a model tried in Holland that works better than the distinct rates.

    BE IT ENACTED by The Queen's most Excellent Majesty, by and with the advice and consent of the Commons in this present Parliament assembled, in accordance with the provisions of the Parliament Acts 1911 and 1949, and by the authority of the same, as follows:

    1 National Minimum Wage
    (1) The national minimum wage shall be according to Schedule 1.
    (2) The national minimum wage shall increase each year on October 1 by the highest of the following measures:
    (a) Retail Prices Index
    (b) Consumer Prices Index

    2 Apprenticeships
    (1) Section 13(3) of statutory instrument The National Minimum Wage Regulations 1999 is hereby repealed.

    3 Short Title
    (1) This Act may be cited as the Minimum Wage Rates Act 2010

    Schedule 1
    Adult Rate: £4.88 per hour
    Development Rate (16-24 year olds): £(4.88 * 4% * Age) per hour, rounded to the nearest penny.

    I don't get it. Nobody seems to understand the consequences of the Poverty Abolition Act. Guaranteed income for everyone, making the minimum wage totally and utterly irrelevant, and y'all still can't bear to see it even slightly reduced.

    I'm pretty sure it doesn't pass. Hopefully some of the other 19 MP's will vote though.

    Unfortunately the one change that would have made me seriously consider this legislation wasn't made, so i had to vote against it.
