The Minimum Income Standard, Poverty Today, Dr Juliet Stone
In this episode I talked with Dr Juliet Stone about the way poverty is impacting society today. We frame the conversation by looking at the Minimum Income Standard which is used as a base line to set the Real Living Wage, an opt in scheme for employers to pay an acceptable minimum to employees. The conversation covers a rage of areas from intergenerational poverty, looking at children and families in particular, to the impacts of benefit cuts and the cruelty of government policy.
Dr Juliet Stone is a Research Associate at Loughborough University, a part of the Centre for Research in Social Policy. The Minimum Income Standard is funded by Joseph Rowntree Foundation.
