Almost 800 businesses in Wales have been caught paying workers below the minimum wage, but not a single one has been prosecuted.
Not only that, there are only 8 minimum wage enforcement officers employed to cover the whole of Wales, and they are all based in Cardiff.
New Labour are focussing their attention on benefit fraud while revenue and customs offices are seeing staff cuts and centralisation.
Overworked tax and minimum wage compliance officers can not keep up - so businesses and individuals are getting away with breaking the law.
Its time more effort was concentrated on the big money - the tax fraudsters and minimum wage law breakers. Is there any point of having rules if they aren't being enforced?
