Increase in the Living Wage

Posted by Debra Gers on
The Living Wage Foundation has today announced the following increases in the Living Wage:

London from £9.15 to £9.40

Elsewhere from £7.85 to £8.25

Just to remind you that the voluntary Living Wage is different to the National Living Wage of £7.20 which comes into effect in April 2016 and which will apply only to people aged 25 or over.

For more details see the links to the Living Wage Foundation’s announcement and to an article from Personnel Today.
