Supermarket workers have to claim £11bn benefits, charity says

The UK government recently announced plans to scrap minimum wage and instead offer the “living wage”, whereby employees would be paid a wage relative to the cost of living.

Consider the implication of such an implementation in Zeeland and the impact this could have on Merchants.
