Let Apprentices Live: raise the apprentice minimum wage to the Real Living Wage

The apprentice minimum wage is currently £6.40 per hour. This is unliveable, but we have a vision for change.

Apprenticeships should be a mechanism of social change; allowing people to train without taking on debt, and retrain and upskill throughout their careers. They are also vital in tackling the climate crisis, getting young people into the careers they're passionate about and opening up new pathways into exciting professions.

But people cannot take advantage of these incredible opportunities if they cannot afford to support themselves or their families whilst they train.

No one can live on £6.40 per hour. Sign the petition to ask the Government to raise the apprentice minimum wage to the Real Living Wage.
