Labour leader Ed Miliband will today commit a Labour government to significantly raising the level of the national minimum wage over the course of the next parliament, as part of an attempt to curtail the UK's rising inequality.
Mr Miliband will promise to establish a "clear link" between the minimum wage and the earnings of other workers to ensure those at the very bottom of the pay scale do not get "left behind".
