Living the Living Wage
10th May 2017
Confirmed by the Living Wage Foundation, everyone at LPW, whether they’re a direct employee, or contractors like our cleaners and builders, is now being paid a minimum £8.45 per hour, nearly a pound more than the Statutory hourly Minimum Wage of £7.50. Calculated annually, the Real Living Wage is the only wage rate based on the actual costs of living.
“This is a really positive step for LPW, making sure everyone working with us is paid at least the minimum they need to live,” says Rachel Robinson, CEO, LPW.
It has affected a few LPW employees, who were previously being paid above the Statutory Minimum Wage.
