Labour Paying Conference Stewards Less than £10 Minimum Wage Promised

Labour is paying its party conference stewards less than £10 per hour, despite announcing this morning that they plan to introduce a £10 minimum wage. In an impassioned tweet this morning the party explained that “one in six working families live in poverty in the UK”  so Labour “would introduce a minimum wage of at least £10 (…) so children are given the opportunities they deserve“. However it seems the party won’t actually be paying the stewards at their Brighton conference that £10 per hour. So much for “be the change you want to see”

Stewards will be made to work everyday from 25 September through to 29 September from 8:00am to 20:00. Short changing the low paid stewards who will be working the conference floor as they debate a motion calling for £10 per hour minimum wage… 

UPDATE: Richard Holden MP says “This is utter hypocrisy from Labour. As usual, they demand one thing in public but can’t even practice what they preach behind closed doors with their own staff.”
