how much is the Living Wage?

We are calling on all churches in England and Wales to pay a Living Wage of at least £8.75 an hour, or £10.20 an hour in London.

Both rates are higher than the Government's so-called 'National Living Wage', which is £7.50 an hour, or substantially less for people aged under 25. The Living Wage takes into account top-up benefits and credits – which are often not enough to keep people out of poverty.

For more details, see our churches' briefing on the Living Wage.
