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.
