Wage Concern - Save the National Minimum Wage
Petition Background (Preamble):
Conservative backbenchers are backing a Bill going through Parliament that would allow employers and employees to ‘opt-out’ of the minimum wage, effectively allowing - for instance - agencies to force staff to sign an opt-out contract before giving them work.
If the Bill is passed by Parliament it would fatally undermine the Minimum Wage in the middle of a recession.
The campaign is now being backed by John Prescott and is called 'Wage Concern', below is a video of John launching the campaign:
