SNP’s low pay shame
People in Inverclyde will be astonished that the SNP voted with theTories and blocked Labours proposal to pay all workers on public sector contracts the Living Wage of £7.65.
Thedecision will affect thousands of workers in Inverclyde from gaining a pay rise.
Commenting on the decision Local MSP Duncan McNeil said:
“The SNP’s failure to support low paid workers will come as a real shock to my hardworking constituents many of whom are receiving less than the Living Wage”
“This measure would have made a real difference to people struggling with rising rents, mounting energy bills and spiralling child care costs.”
“Stuart McMillan MSP for West of Scotland once again sided with the party whips against the interests of Inverclyde’s hard working poor.”
