Labour no longer the party of working people after leader calls the National Living Wage ‘a corruption’

Conservative Party Deputy Chairman Rob Halfon said Labour is no longer the party of working people after leader Jeremy Corbyn criticized the National Living Wage.

Speaking today in PMQs, Jeremy Corbyn labelled the NLW, which will benefit 2.9 million workers, “a corruption“.

Conservative Party Deputy Chairman Rob Halfon MP said: “For the Labour Party to describe the National Living Wage as ‘corruption’ is a slap in the face to millions of low earners up and down the country. It just proves yet again why Labour is no longer the party of working people.

“The National Living Wage will benefit 2.9 million people and it’s a fundamental reform to ensure low income workers get a fair wage for a fair day’s work.  It’s sad that Corbyn and the Labour Party don’t understand this.”
