No less than the minimum wage – writing to MP Philip Davies

News No Comments

We watched Newsnight about MP Philip Davies wanting to lower the minimum wage so that employers would want to give people with learning disabilities a job.   Members at People First did not think his idea to get employers to give people with learning disabilities a job was very good. This is because people would be being treated unfairly. We wrote to MP Philip Davies and told him what we thought.  We also invited him to our office to learn more from people who have paid jobs and about Supported Employment.  Please read the letter we sent below.
