Too many families are struggling to keep their heads above water financially, because employers aren't paying them enough to live on. The real Living Wage, calculated at £9.00 in the UK and £10.55 in London, is the independently set wage that good employers pay to ensure workers can meet the cost of living.
Our top targets right now are big employers in all our communities which can lift hundreds - or thousands - of people out of in-work poverty and into a life of dignity.
We need your help to get sports clubs and Universities paying it. Shockingly only 1 in 5 universities pay all their staff enough to live on. Meanwhile, even though the average turnover for a Premier League football club is of £233 million, most top clubs don't pay their stadium cleaners and stewards enough to live on.
