Morning Money: The Living Wage three months on
It's been three months since the national living wage was introduced in the UK. The idea was always that the rate would be regularly revised, but Brexit and the power shifts in the major political parties could put the next steps at risk. Matt Cox spoke to Caroline Reilly, Senior Programme Manager at the Living Wage Foundation, to get her thoughts.
