People Before Profit is calling for the lower minimum wage for young workers to be removed.

The party launched its National Minimum Wage bill earlier today.

It's calling for workers, between 16 and 20, to be paid at least minimum wage - which is currently €11.30.

Party TD, Paul Murphy, says it's discrimination that people under the age of 20 would be entitled to earn less than the minimum wage.

The bill is supported by trade unions, student unions and the National Youth Council.

It will be debated in the Dáil next Wednesday.
