Justice Cleaners Get A Pay Rise

The cleaners, mostly migrants, want their pay increased from the legal minimum to the London living wage.
Replying to a request for help from the shadow justice secretary, Richard Burgon, Gauke said that the Ministry of Justice is a “great place to work” and that ministers “value the contribution that these hard-working staff make”.
But, he went on, while the Government would “strictly enforce” minimum wage standards, the decision of whether to pay the London living wage would “rightly remain” with the outsourcer.
