Responding to Chancellor Sajid Javid’s announcement on the minimum wage, TUC General Secretary Frances O’Grady said:

“The TUC has long campaigned for a minimum wage of over £10, and an end to the discrimination young workers suffer from lower rates.

”But the Chancellor’s pre-election promise should be taken with a huge bucket of salt. This pledge would be overwhelmed by a no-deal Brexit. If we leave the EU without a deal, jobs will be lost, wages will fall, and our public services will suffer.”
