The minimum wage should be proportional to business size

Comment 1st July 2010

I believe that the minimum wage should rise proportionally.

The problem with the minimum wage is that small business can't afford to pay the minimum wage, but some workers are happy to work for under this. On the flip side, there are big companies rolling around in profit who pay the minimum wage. Supermarkets are a great example of this.

Why does this matter?

For example, ASDA earns huge profits, but the workers get minimum wage pay. Surely this is a kick in the face to the manual labour that some of the workers have to do. (I stress that some workers do this!)

But if the minimum wage was raised for the bigger companies being nasty, the smaller ones would lose out, and probably have to close their businesses.

So, raise the wage in accordance with profit, or workforce size.
