Where next for the Living Wage?

The Chancellor’s new ‘National Living Wage’ announced in the Budget will mean a welcome pay rise for low paid workers. But implementing it will be a big challenge for many employers and on its own it won’t secure a decent standard of living for millions of working families.

What does this higher wage floor mean for the future of the Living Wage campaign? How will employers and consumers respond to the increasingly cluttered terminology surrounding low pay?

At an event in central London, the Resolution Foundation will present new analysis of the ‘National Living Wage’ – who gains and potential issues that may lie ahead. Expert speakers will discuss Britain’s evolving low pay challenge and the future of the Living Wage, followed by a Q&A.

Gavin Kelly, Chief Executive at the Resolution Foundation
