    A Living Wage & The Minimum Wage / School Bus Crash in North Point

    On Tuesday's Backchat, a living wage and the minimum wage. Oxfam says local workers need around $55 per hour in order to meet basic living needs, while the minimum hourly wage is now at $34.50.

    Oxfam believes that paying a living wage would enable employees and their families to make a reasonable living and secure a decent standard of living, address the problem of working poverty, and close the gap between the rich and poor to create a fairer society.

    Almost 1.4 million people are living below the official poverty line, which means earning a monthly income of $4,000 or less as an individual. Are poor people getting poorer despite the improving economy? Has the government been doing enough? Would you encourage employers to pay more - and if so, how?

    After 9.20, the school bus crash in North Point.
