United Kingdom -Paid less than minimum wage -October 29, 2012

One in five workers in the UK is paid less than required for a basic standard of living, a KPMG research report suggests. The proportion is much higher among waiters and bar staff, at up to 90% of workers. The report states that nearly five million people failed to command the living wage - a pay packet that enabled a basic standard of living.
