The Government could drastically increase the amount of workers on living wage by raising the salaries of some of its own workers, like those in the care industry, the Archbishop of York has told Good Morning Britain.
Dr John Semantu dismissed suggestions raising the minimum wage to a living salary would prove too difficult for businesses and said:
"The Government is one of the biggest employers so if they really want to do it, for example in the care industry, the Government could...increase the kind of budgets, then it is quite possible people could be paid a living wage."
