Unison calls for equal pay among apprentices and younger workers
Europe's biggest public sector union has called for the minimum wage to apply to apprentices and the adult rate given to workers aged between 18 and 22.
Unison claims that many young people have similar costs to those over the age of
25 and says there should be a rate of pay which is not determined by age.
The union continued by stating that there are skills shortages in many sectors and therefore apprentices are needed in certain industries as they are "an important investment in the future of our country".
