Skirting the minimum wage

The Independent has caught up with the campaign that has been running in Private Eye for some time, against organisations which avoid paying the minimum wage.

Even Labour-controlled councils may be guilty of encouraging the practice if they have contracted-out social services work to firms which exploit employees in this way.

It is good to see from the article that Vince Cable at BIS is concerned, especially as BIS, through Revenue & Customs, is responsible for enforcing compliance with the National Minimum Wage.
