The Scottish Youth Parliament (SYP) is calling on politicians and businesses to support its campaign for a fairer wage for low-paid Scots.
The SYP is launching the One Fair Wage campaign, which demands that workers earn at least enough to cover basic living costs.
Chairman Grant Costello MSYP said: "Far too many workers are being paid wages which are far too low to live on. It's unacceptable for young workers to be paid as little as £3.68 an hour.
"It's unacceptable for the children of working families to be living in poverty. One Fair Wage is about organisations making a moral and economic choice to pay their workers a Scottish living wage."
The year-long campaign will see SYP members trying to convince their local councils and businesses that everyone in Scotland deserves a fair living wage.
The group said many poorly-paid workers had been forced to rely on foodbanks and charities.
One Fair Wage has already received support from the Scottish Government, the Scottish Labour Party, Unison and Save the Children.
Angela Constance, minister for youth employment, said: "Living wage is an important part of a package of Scottish Government policies to support sustainable employment and tackle poverty.
"We have demonstrated our full support for the campaign's principles by implementing the living wage through Scottish public-sector pay."
Kez Dugdale, Labour's shadow youth employment minister, said: "Two-thirds of the children living in poverty come from working households. Work simply has to pay if we want to live in a more equal and fair society, and I look forward to working very closely with SYP to turn that dream into a reality."
