Tory voters want to tax the rich, increase the minimum wage.. and regulation on unpaid internships

Towards the end of last year, a poll demonstrated overwhelming levels of support for higher taxes on wealthier people, an increased minimum wage, better rights for temporary workers and more taxes on the banks amongst the general public. Interestingly, in each case, this included the significant majority of Tory voters.

Well, yesterday a YouGov poll demonstrated that Conservative voters are also supportive of better rights for interns. It found that the majority of supporters of all the three main parties supported the payment of at least the minimum wage for interns and government intervention to regulate internships. It also found a clear majority believed that internships give an unfair advantage to those with wealthy parents:
