19 May 2014 Last updated at 10:02 BST

Ed Miliband has said low wages are a "terrible scandal" and Labour will "build a higher-wage" economy.

Labour said today it would set a target to link the minimum wage to national earnings, but it has refused to announce the exact figure.

Speaking to the Today programme Mr Miliband said he would not "pluck a figure" out of the air.

He told Sarah Montague that he was "setting out a framework", and businesses would be consulted before the exact figure was set.
