Fact Check: Do six million people earn less than the living wage?

I’m angry and fed up with the way in which six million people earn less than the living wage.

Jeremy Corbyn, leader of the Labour Party, interviewed on the BBC’s Andrew Marr show on April 23.

To assess this claim by Jeremy Corbyn, distinguishing various low-wage floors is important. In 2017, the Living Wage Foundation’s higher voluntary Real Living Wage (RLW) is £9.75 an hour in London, £8.45 elsewhere, based on a calculation of living costs.

The government’s compulsory wage floor is lower and covers all employees. For employees aged 25 and over, it’s called the National Living Wage (NLW) and is £7.50 per hour. For younger employees, it’s called the National Minimum Wage, and ranges from £3.50 to £7.05.

No more PPI means higher interest costs for unsecured loans

Was the decision to prohibit the joint sale of PPI with unsecured loans justified? PPI or payment protection insurance has become a financial service associated with large pay-outs by the banks, windfall payments received by many bank customers and far too many unwanted phone calls. While much discussion has unsurprisingly focused on the nearly £14 billion pounds of PPI customer redress paid out in the last 3 years, the effect on this decision on the cost of  unsecured lending is also significant.

Donald Trump’s victory has turned that on its head – and with it the assumption that voters will make rational choices based on what is best for their own circumstances, and without regard for how others fare.

Why EU rules risk making Italy's banking crisis a whole lot worse

This article by Philip Molyneux, Professor of Banking and Finance, Bangor University Business School was originally published on The Conversation. Read the original article

In the wake of the Italian constitutional referendum, the country’s banking crisis is going from bad to worse. The European Central Bank (ECB)‘s decision to refuse an extension to Banca Monte dei Paschi di Siena to raise €5 billion (£4.2 billion) has left the country’s third-largest bank facing a government bailout that looks likely to inflict severe pain on many ordinary Italian savers.

As if that were not enough, Italy’s biggest bank, UniCredit, announced a restructuring plan that requires a capital raising of €13 billion in the first three months of next year. Given the torrid time Monte dei Paschi has had trying to find sufficient private backing, will UniCredit need help from the Italian taxpayer, too?

But there is little proof that scrapping the €500 note will improve chances of clamping down on nefarious transactions.
