    “Since George Osborne’s invention of the National Living Wage in 2015, the earnings of the lowest-paid have risen sharply, and yet the most recent figures showed a continued rise in overall employment and no sign of rising joblessness”.

    Could an article on the reasons for this be published some time? Its interesting to say the least and seems to fly in the face of free market thinking about the deleterious consequences of policy driven increases in wage / salary rates as opposed market changes.
