'Profitable business should pay a decent wage'
This Christmas, there are 32,100 more people in work compared to last. I am certain that they and their families are looking forward to the festive season with far more hope and optimism than they did in 2014.
Yes of course the wages they receive will mean they can afford to spend more on their loved ones and on this year's celebrations.
Importantly they also have the dignity, pride and self-worth that comes with having a job, earning a living and leaving the dole queues behind.
