Text from “Are you paid a Living Wage?” flyer distributed in Burgess Hill Town Centre

Are you paid a Living Wage?

The Living Wage is based on the amount an individual needs to earn to cover the basic costs of living:

Living Wage UK £7.65 per hour

Living Wage London £8.80 per hour

Statutory Minimum Wage £6.31 per hour

4.8 million people, 20% of employees, are paid below the living wage, which is calculated by the Greater London Authority for people in London, and the Centre for Research in Social Policy at Loughborough University for the rest of the country, according to the basic cost of living in the UK.

Does your employer support the Living Wage?

Could you…Should you…work for less than a Living Wage?

We all currently face attacks on all sides from the Coalition Government:
