Living Wage Week 2019

This week is Living Wage Week 2019.    

The real Living Wage is now £9.30 per hour, and is based on cost of living.

Living Wage Scotland awards the Living Wage employer mark to Scottish employers - a symbol of responsible business practice.

Why the real Living Wage is needed :

+ 470,000 people in Scotland don't earn the real Living Wage.

+ 182,000 children in Scotland live in poverty despite having one person in their household in work.

In-work poverty remains a real problem.
