Living Wage Week 2021: watch our exclusive webinar!

ECA recently hosted an exclusive webinar with the Living Wage Foundation, Bristol City Council, and an ECA Member to discuss the Real Living Wage and how employers can take part in the initiative.

As Living Wage Week gets underway, the Living Wage Foundation has announced that the Real Living Wage has increased by 40p to £9.90 an hour in the UK, and £11.05 in London.

The organisation has also said that over 300,000 people working for almost 9,000 real Living Wage Employers throughout the country are set for a pay boost as a result. 

The Living Wage rates are the only rates independently calculated based on what people need to live on. 

Watch the full webinar including audience Q&A below:

Katherine Chapman, Living Wage Foundation Director, said: 

“With living costs rising so rapidly, today’s new Living Wage rates will provide hundreds of thousands of workers and their families with greater security and stability.  

"For the past 20 years the Living Wage movement has shaped the debate on low pay, showing what is possible when responsible employers step up and provide a wage that delivers dignity. Despite this, there are still millions trapped in working poverty, struggling to keep their heads above water – and these are people working in jobs that kept society going during the pandemic like social care workers and cleaners. We know that the Living Wage is good for businesses as well as workers, and as we rebuild our economy post pandemic, the real Living Wage must be at its heart.”
