Holly Lynch MP with young activists

Holly’s campaign to extend the Government’s National Living Wage to all workers over the age of 18 has stalled in its progress to becoming law after MPs ran out of time to continue their debate. The discussions are scheduled to continue on 23 November.

If passed, the bill would extend the national living wage (NLW) to those aged 18 to 24. At the moment, it is only payable to those aged 25 or older, and those aged under 25 receive the applicable national minimum wage for their age group.

The campaign was well-received on social media, saw young activists come to Parliament in support and received coverage from a number of news outlets. See the list below for a selection of stories about the campaign:
