Even to the benefit of their employees. The power to manage their wage budget lies with the councils - not with central (Edinburgh) government.

 

I see.

Every single one of the local councillors of my acquaint would have absolute apoplexy if Holyrood tried to take away their (the councils') right to manage their wages budget.

 

Even to the benefit of their employees?  The motion had significant TU backing.

OK

 

Alex Salmond tried to tie the living wage to the independence debate saying that the EU would only allow such measures if Scotland became independent, the EU refuted his claims.  I've no problem with the SNP desiring independence, but to put the welfare of Scots secondary isn't acceptable to me :)

Holyrood do not set the wages of Council employees. Councils do that.

 

Holyrood has ensured that all of its employees are paid the Living Wage.

 

It's up to Councils to manage their own employees.

 

Trying to shift the blame up to where there is no jurisdiction is typical of Labour-led councils.

 

The SNP stated that they had to vote against the motion as it may break EU law, the EU have since said that there is no such law.

 

Shifting blame is at the heart of the SNP.
