It is ridiculous that fines for fly-tipping can be as high as £50,000 while that for non-payment of the minimum wage is £5,000 in the UK.

Edward Miliband
Said Edward Miliband, Leader of the Labour Party and Leader of the Opposition (MP for Doncaster North, UK) while addresses shoppers in Brighton town centre on the eve of the Labour Party annual conference on 21 September 2013.

Miliband also said : "I want a high wage British economy, not a low wage brutish economy".

According to a report published in Belfast Telegraph as part of efforts to prevent the exploitation of workers he also promised a huge increase in the fine for employers who failed to pay the national minimum wage, with the penalty set to rise from £5,000 to £50,000 under a Labour administration.

Note : Fly-tipping is the ‘illegal deposit of any waste onto land or a highway that has no licence to accept it.’ Illegal dumps of waste can vary in scale and the type of waste involved.
