The Price of a Pay Rise – The case for increasing pay for workers

The Government claims that the economy is in recovery but stagnating wages mean that the majority of us aren't feeling the benefit.

Working people have become victims of low-pay Britain. In fact, real wages have fallen so far that now, for the first time, the majority of those living in poverty are in work - a trend that looks set to continue, unless we act now.

This is why Class, the North West TUC and the Institute of Employment Rights are holding an event to discuss how we can increase pay for workers, why this is not only vital for individuals, but for society as a whole, and what we must do to create a fair, yet prosperous economy that works for working people.

Speakers include:-

• John Hendy QC – Institute of Employment Rights

• Tim Roache – President of Class, Regional Secretary of Yorkshire and North Derbyshire GMB

• Professor Jill Rubery – Manchester Business School

• Professor Roger Seifert – Wolverhampton Business School

This event will be followed by a reception, with refreshments provided.
