The TUC is opposed to the decision by the British Government toabolish wages councils, which if successful will worsen the pay andconditions of the 2.6 million workers covered by them, and many otherlow paid workers who use the rates set as reference points. Drawing ontheoretical literature and empirical research, explores the argumentsfor and against abolition and discusses the case for a statutorynational minimum wage. Concludes by arguing that the case for abolitionis far from proven on economic and social grounds, and that theintroduction of a statutory national minimum wage, combined with otheractive labour market intervention by the Government, is needed toovercome the problem of low pay.
