Good move I say, why should people be getting any less?

What some employers get away with paying for work is a joke!

I oppose a mandatory living wage because i feel the minimum wage should be set on the basis of what business can afford rather than what people need (making the UK less competitive would do nobody any good) however i do believe the UK can handle a higher minimum wage, especially larger companies like Ikea.

Of the countries with lower unemployment than ours i believe Denmark has the highest minimum wage at a tad over £10 per hour.
