It's October and the minimum wage has gone up to £5.52 an hour. Game, are so gracious to pay me 3p above minimum wage, fantastic stuff. I guess they have to save a bit of cash for a few years after buying out their only other competitor on the high street.

£5.52 isn't enough; the minimum wage should be at least...

£7.50 an hour

...For all workers, not just those over 22.

Although the minimum wage was an important achievement - something that I doubt any government in the future will try and take away, it is simply not enough given the conditions people are finding themselves in. House prices in the UK have doubled in the last 10 years, the minimum wage has not kept up with living increases.
