Failing to pay minimum wage is 'immoral and illegal'

Failing to pay staff the national minimum wage "is immoral and illegal" and employers caught deserve to "have their reputation ruined", the Trade Union Congress general secretary said.

It's great that minimum wage crooks are finally getting named and shamed.

Under-paying your lowest paid staff is immoral and illegal. Employers caught in the act deserve to be fined and have their reputation ruined.

This should send a clear message that dodging the minimum wage does not pay. All minimum wage cheats should be named and shamed, and HMRC need greater resources to catch even more crooks.

– Frances O'Grady, TUC general secretary
