In 2015 the NMW was forecast to be at least £9 an hour by 2020. That is effectively just over 6 months away. To get from the current £8.21 then it would need a 9.6% increase. If the Conservatives fail to reach their target by their date, surely it would cost them in an election. Thus, by one means or another, are we going to see at least £9 an hour by 2020 ? Then, if we do, who the heck is going to pay for it ?
