A Labour government could ban companies from paying dividends to shareholders unless they pay workers the living wage, Jeremy Corbyn has said.
He said in a speech to a think tank too much profit from economic growth had gone to those at the top of society.
The Labour leader was explaining his strategy to tackle pay inequality and “institutionalise fairness” in Britain.
He later told the Unite union in Scotland the Tories wanted to “tip the scales further” in favour of bosses.
Liberal Democrat leader Tim Farron said Mr Corbyn “seems committed on ripping apart our business sector in pursuit of an egalitarian fantasy”. A Conservative Party spokesman called Labour a “clear threat to our economic security”.
