No, actually i cant imagine the price increases everywhere to fund this wage rise. I do remember the claims that there would be mass redundancies and price hikes when the national minimum wage was brought in.. didne happen. I also remember the very same claims being made each and every time the NMW was increased. Still didne happen. The recent introduction of the national living wage by the Tories was met by much gnashing of Teeth and howls of employment armageddon by employers throughout the land. Still waiting for that to happen but no sign so far.

How will this help foreign investment?

The media need the have clarity on this.....
But hey it's a much better idea to keep people on low wages and have tbe taxpayer (me and you) subsidise their wages through tax credits.
