Most of Momentum’s Campaign Jobs Don’t Pay £15 Per Hour

Trade unions and the Labour Party campaigned for, and won, paid holidays and breaks, which means that the £15 per hour national minimum wage the Labour Party membership voted for at their conference equates to £31,200.* Yet we’ve gone through Momentum’s job advertisements and found that most of the jobs at the campaign pay well below that figure…

How can Momentum credibly campaign for businesses to pay a minimum wage that they don’t pay their own staff – “be the change you want to see” is a basic test of credibility. We’ve asked Momentum’s press office to explain themselves. GB News also invited Momentum on this morning to make their case. Embarrassed silence.

They’re not the only left-wing organisation guilty of hypocrisy, as our senior reporter Christian Calgie explained this morning on GB News. The £15-an-hour mandate is ridiculously above the market rate for most jobs, it is above the average wage for experienced staff in many roles. That is proven by the fact that those organisations campaigning for it, don’t even pay it themselves.

*£15 x 40 x 52 = £31,200

1922 Committee Treasurer: Many Tory MPs Share View Gavin Williamson Should be Sacked

Guido’s Calgie appeared alongside Sir Geoffrey Clifton-Brown MP on Sunday night, taking the opportunity to follow up his story from earlier in the week that the 1922 treasurer believes Gavin Williamson should be sacked. After having nothing to add last week, Sir Geoffrey defended himself, arguing “I think it is probably time for somebody else to take over the reins of education”. When Calgie asked whether the Tory grandee felt many of his colleagues shared the view, he boldly claimed:

“I think many of my colleagues probably wouldn’t voice it quite as stridently and quite as publicly as I do, but I suspect privatly there will be quite a number that have the same views as I do”

The bell tolls for thee, Gavin…
