Our economy -; and our nation’s future -; is built on the hard work of families like those across the Wirral.
”Helping make work pay is central to our plan to building a stronger economy, one where we make sure everyone who works can afford to live” said Alison McGovern.
We will raise the minimum wage to £8 and reward companies that sign up to pay a living wage with a business rates and tax cut.
We will back those companies that help build a fairer economy.
And for 24 million working people who are feeling the cost of living crisis, we will cut income tax by bringing back the 10p income tax rate.
Making sure all work pays a decent wage will make our economy stronger.
On Wirral our economy is supported by small businesses. We will make it easier to start and grow businesses.
We’ll create a British investment bank that will lend money to new and growing businesses and we’ll support small businesses by cutting business rates for 1.5 million small firms and freezing their energy bills.
