Mothers paid 47% of minimum wage while on maternity leave

Statutory maternity pay should be increased in line with the national living wage, says the charity Maternity Action, as 96 per cent of women say they worry about money while on maternity leave. Maternity pay increased to £156.66, from £151.97 per week at the start of April, a rise of 3.1 per cent. Yet as inflation was seven per cent in March, the amount has fallen in real terms. This figure is equivalent to 45 per cent of the National Living Wage, or minimum age, for a 35-hour week at a rate

Opinion: We should give everyone turning 18 a £500 culture bonus

Arts and cultural education have resulted in some of the greatest and most successful UK exports – from the BBC’s television programmes, to musicians and designers. But it seems this Conservative government is intent on scrapping what little remains of arts education and British soft power. “I want you to have a job at the end… because I’m interested in outputs”, is what education secretary Nadhim Zahawi recently told me when I asked him about the role of higher education in today’s society.

Opinion: If you’re talking about ‘free speech’, you’re probably privileged

We can all breathe a sigh of relief today, because the “war on wokery” has finally been declared. Phew. Speaking over the weekend, justice secretary Dominic Raab vowed to make free speech a “trump card” – taking legal precedence over other rights. Seemingly, in his mind – and in the minds of a large swathe of the British population – free speech is being “whittled away” in the name of wokery. And now, apparently, is the time (in the midst of a cost-of-living crisis, at the tail end of a pandemi
