United Kingdom -Northern Ireland has lowest pay in UK -September 07, 2015

More working people in the province are paid less than £7 per hour than any other part of the UK. Figures showed the 2013 annual gross salary for workers here was £27,697 - almost £6,000 below the UK average. The Northern Ireland Committee of the Irish Congress of Trade Unions (ICTU) said the research backed the campaign for a 'living wage' for workers. This would be the best solution to deal with problems of low productivity and high welfare costs.
