Lidl favours minimum wage

We've had a minimum wage in the UK for several years, though it's not really enough and I favour payment of a living wage as recommended by Church Action on Poverty. But I do a lot of my shopping in Lidl, it's in easy walking distance and I appreciate low prices. In Germany Lidl is the second largest of the discounters and its support for a minimum wage is a surprise and is probably an attempt to salvage its reputation after the bad press it had last year. It certainly gives a new twist to the debate about terms and conditions of work.

I picked up the report from an Austrian source - - and you can read that by clicking here. Now for a bit of a challenge for you. Use a search engine to find other reports on the same story and note down auf Deutsch how they differ.
