Living Wage Week is the annual celebration of the Living Wage Movement. For 2019, the Living Wage Week will take place from Monday 11th November to Sunday 17th November.
The Living Wage campaign is an independent movement of businesses, organisations and people who believe a hard day’s work deserves a fair day’s pay. As an employer, George Nicolson choose to pay the real Living Wage on a voluntary basis and therefore providing an ethical benchmark for responsible pay.
The real Living Wage:
- is independently calculated based on what employees and their families need to live
- is why it is higher than the government minimum wage (rebranded as the ‘National Living Wage’)
- employers voluntarily choose to pay it
- applies to all workers over the age of 18 – recognising that young people have the same living costs as everyone else.
George Nicolson are pleased to announce we have joined over 5,500 accredited #LivingWage employers across the UK.
