Justin Madders comments on over 200 employers being found to have broken minimum wage law

Justin Madders MP, Labour’s Shadow Employment Rights Minister, commenting on over 200 employers being found to have broken minimum wage law, said:

“The fact that we are seeing so many employers and household names flouting the minimum wage shows the Government simply aren’t taking this issue seriously enough.

“There have been laws on the minimum wage for over 20 years now so there should be no excuse for this level of breaches.

“The Government need to take tougher action on those that flout the rules and should be looking at any contracts they have with these companies; taxpayers’ money shouldn’t be going to employers who rip off their own workers.”
