Wage victory for labourer

A LABOURER who earned just £2.66 an hour has been awarded nearly £3,000 in minimum wage arrears.

Terry Richardson, from Keighley, West Yorkshire, took local builder Mohammed Aslam to an employment tribunal in Leeds after Aslam refused to pay him the £4.10 minimum wage.

Mr Richardson was paid £80 for a 30-hour week, later dropping to £72 for 20 hours.
