According to the Independent yesterday, the Scottish Government will end the 1% pay cap next year while Westminster will carry on punishing low wage-earners for the errors of economic elites.
Here’s what Finance Secretary Derek Mackay said:
‘We will take a reasonable approach that absolutely recognises that the time is up for the one per cent pay cap. Not only will the SNP commit to that, but we will do it.’
Meanwhile in London, the unholy alliance between the Tories and the DUP voted down a Labour proposal to do the same. The DUP probably think it’s a holy alliance I suppose.
