Nearly 6,000 businesses and employers have stepped up and proudly pay the voluntary real Living Wage to all their staff, including sub-contracted workers. Together, they have put over £1 billion back into the pockets of some of the lowest paid workers in the UK.
But there is still a long way to go until every cleaner, caterer, security guard and other hard-working people who are currently struggling to survive on just the minimum wage can earn enough to live on. Remember: only the real Living Wage is calculated based on the true cost of living.
So we need YOU to help grow the movement and fight in-work poverty!
