Hitting workers in their pockets will choke any chance of economic recovery – Anneliese Dodds

Anneliese Dodds MP, Labour’s Shadow Chancellor, responding to reports a raise to the national living wage is to be scrapped until next year, said:

“It’s astonishing that the government can clap for our key workers one day and then U-turn on a promised pay rise for the lowest paid the next – especially during a second national lockdown.

“It’s another irresponsible choice by a Chancellor who’s choking off any chance of recovery by hitting workers in their pockets.”
