The government has today (Friday) published a “name and shame” list of employers caught paying less than the minimum wage.

TUC General Secretary Frances O’Grady said:

“Today’s list should put the frighteners on rogue employers across the country. Pay your staff properly or face hefty fines and get shamed in the papers.

“Too many bosses across the country are denying workers the pay they’ve earned.

“Minimum wage dodging has reached chronic levels in shops, salons and hospitality. The government should focus their efforts to ensure that these sectors clean up their act.

“The best way to get fair pay is to join a union. Union members in the private sector earn an average 8% more.”
