Greens propose a £10 minimum wage and a 'wealth tax'
The Green Party of England and Wales is calling for the minimum wage to rise to £10 an hour by 2020.
In an address to the Greens' autumn conference, party leader Natalie Bennett said Britain was a low-wage economy and people deserved "a decent return on their labour".
The party is also proposing to impose a "wealth tax" on those with assets of more than £3m, and to toughen up the rules on tax avoidance.
