Today in Business Insider, we read:
Fewer workers in Scotland earn below the real living wage compared with their counterparts in the rest of the UK.
Figures from the Scottish Parliament Information Centre (SPICe) revealed that just 9% of employees in Scotland earn less than £9.90 per hour.
The real living wage has since been increased to £10.90.
Meanwhile, an average of 12.2% of workers across Britain do not earn the real living wage, with 11.8% in Wales, 12.5% in England and 14.6% in Northern Ireland.https://www.insider.co.uk/news/fewer-scots-earn-below-real-28861442
At the same time, the above map of faith in different parts of the UK is being shared widely on social media. Only Scotland appears to be confidently atheist.
Where is faith weakest and wages are highest? Scotland.
Where is faith strongest and wages are lowest? Northern Ireland
Where is faith middling and wages are middling? England.
I smell a negative correlation between faith and wages. I’m going to draw a scatter graph! You can’t stop me!
Wait, A&E times are fastest in Scotland and slowest in Northern Ireland!
Another scatter graph. Oh, joy.
OK, enough. I’m going to lie down now.
