Jeremy Corbyn’s confusing claim about the National Living Wage
Jeremy Corbyn said people on the NLW could lose out by £5,000 by 2020. But his claims are based on shaky assumptions.
FactCheck: are you worse off under David Cameron?
Have living standards really bounced back to their pre-crash levels? Or are we losing thousands of pounds a year, as Ed Miliband says?
FactCheck: have wages fallen by £1,300 a year?
Are the latest figures on jobs and wages cause for optimism or evidence of a “living standards crisis”? Are we really getting paid £1,300 a year less than in 2010?
FactCheck: are benefits rising faster than pay?
Iain Duncan Smith says we’re spending too much on the benefits bill, which have gone up faster than private sector wages. Is he right? FactCheck takes a look.
