Jeremy Corbyn told a party gathering that employers should not be allowed to exploit younger workers and vowed to bring the salaries of those under 18 in line with the broader workforce.

Former Labour leader Tony Blair introduced a minimum wage in Britain in 1999. Overseen by an independent body, it has steadily increased and now stands at 8.21 pounds for workers over 25, while those under 18 are entitled to 4.35 pounds.

Labour has vowed to increase the overall minimum wage to 10 pounds an hour, and to include younger workers.

I see little excuse for age discrimination. But I'm no supporter of Corbyn. If I were a Brit I'd vote LDP now.
My problem is simple: I just know better than everyone-else!
