The question is: evaluate the reasons why wage differentials exist in the uk

One of my points was the demand for labour differs between regions in the UK. This explains why solicitors in London get higher salaries than Scotland for example as well as high living costs.

What could a potential evaluation point be fore this argument. I really can’t think of anything. Any help would be appreciated, thank youuu.

Perhaps argue supply may differ too. As supply of labour is also higher in London, you could argue that the wage rate should be at a similar rate to that in Scotland.

that makes sense, do you have any evidence to support this?

high cost of living in areas such London causes greater demand and low supply thus the differential in wage rates
sorry i don’t really understand this point. How would a high cost of living cause more demand? And more demand for what?

the evaluation point is meant to argue how the regional divide might not lead to wage differentials.

But thanks anyway

Population

Infrastructure (reduced geographic immobility in London increased labour supply)
