Poll: Is £8 a fair minimum wage?

ed

After Ed Miliband kick-started Labour's final conference before the general election with a pledge to hike the minimum wage to at least £8, we want to know what you think. The party leader said the rise over the next parliament - from the £6.

I'm not sure Varela will be involved because I just noticed he has scored for the under 21's tonight against Brighton but i'm sure Olsson and G'mac will be involved and I have a feeling Davidson and G...

70 million to the city economy, Can we have some figures to see how much immigrants put on the economy of wolverhampton, Social care, Translaters, Health service, Housing, which they are treated to, ...

markie

You are right, steve, the smoking ban was quite unecessary and has killed many businesses. Sadly so many traditional pubs have closed. In addition so many females feel insecure walking past city centr...

Social workers to be recruited from London in bid to help struggling Black Country services

Sandwell Council House in Oldbury

A struggling children's service is turning to London to recruit social workers in a bid to help turn around its fortunes.

Newspapers don't tell me what to do!

There was a time when newspapers used to report the news, now they manufacture the news then report it. (I'm talking about Nationals here)
