New report urges churches to support the Living Wage

We have co-published a report with the Church Urban Fund which makes the Christian case for the Living Wage.

The report follows up on a workshop we ran together in May 2011.You can download the full report here: The Living Wage and the Role of the Church.

Here are some speakers and participants from the workshop sharing thier views:

“Churches that pay the Living Wage should be really pleased about it; they should be shouting it out loud. They should be really happy that they’re part of a Church that is contributing to their community in that way, and they should be encouraging their church members to go and ask their employer: do they pay their cleaners the Living Wage and if not, why not?”
Paul Morrison, Policy Adviser for the Methodist Church
