78. (LIVING) WAGE AGAINST THE MACHINE
Hello! What can we do about the scandal of growing in-work poverty in the UK? This week we hear inspiring stories from campaigners both here and across the pond who have pushed employers to end low pay. Tyree Johnson from Fight for $15 talks about winning a $15 minimum wage in Illinois. The Living Wage Foundation’s Lola McEvoy tells us how we can get involved in the living wage campaign in our workplaces. And Ed’s ParkRun pal (and director of the Resolution Foundation) Torsten ‘Torstiekins’ Bell explains what government can do to tackle the problem.
