Peers begged for 'hardship fund' after daily allowance was cut to £162
Unelected members had their tax-free payment reduced from £323 when the crisis hit, with only those who “actively participated” in debates eligible.
Astonishingly, a member even claimed the changes to pay are “not even minimum wage”. Minimum wage for a worker over 25 in the UK is currently £8.72 per hour.
The complaints have prompted renewed calls to abolish the “out of control” chamber, with peers exhibiting “sheer arrogance” as millions across the UK face unemployment and poverty.  I cannot believe it department! 3136669762

I would bet that many of those peers have no idea what minimum wage is. If they think £20.25 per hour (based on a 40 hour week) is minimum wage. drunken
