Tories’ living wage plans a pathetic attempt at catch-up, says John McDonnell

John McDonnell MP, Labour’s Shadow Chancellor, commenting on the Conservatives’ living wage announcement, said:

“This pathetic attempt at catch-up by the Conservatives will fool nobody.

“Labour will introduce £10 as a minimum as soon as we take office and, rising with living costs, it will mean everybody over 16 years of age will be earning comfortably more than £10.50 an hour by 2024.”
