We are delighted to announce we are now a Living Wage Employer.
‘The real Living Wage is the only UK wage rate that is voluntarily paid by over 4,700 UK businesses who believe their staff deserve a fair day’s pay for a hard day’s work. Our employers pay the real Living Wage which is higher than the government minimum.
In 2016 the government introduced the National Living Wage – while we at the Living Wage Foundation welcome this pay rise for low-paid workers, it is not a Living Wage as it isn’t calculated based on actual living costs.
Over 180,000 employees have received a pay rise as a result of the Living Wage campaign and we enjoy cross-party support. We have a broad range of employers accredited with the Foundation including 1/3 of the FTSE 100 and big household names including ITV, GOOGLE, IKEA, Everton FC and Chelsea FC.’
