Newham Council and the Metropolitan Police have joined forces to target companies that are breaking the law by not paying the National Minimum Wage.
Labour leader Ed Miliband and London Mayor Boris Johnson called for firms to pay the Living Wage a few days ago.
Mayor of Newham, Sir Robin Wales, is backing their call but argues we need to start by fighting the rogue employers who offer only poverty pay.
He wants the law changed so that councils can tackle the issue directly and quickly rather than bringing in third parties later for enforcement.
