About the campaign

UKYP national campaign for 2015 – A Living Wage for all

The national minimum wage should be raised in line with the living wage, as calculated by the Centre for Research in Social Policy, in order to guarantee workers the decent standard of living they deserve. A living wage for all became the priority campaign after securing 156 votes against 117 for ‘votes at 16’ during the UK Youth Parliament’s House of Commons Sitting in November 2014. A total of 285 Members of Youth Parliament aged 11-18 took part in the debates, the subjects for which were voted for by over 875,000 young people across the UK.
