Living Wage Campaign

The Living Wage – building the people’s
 movement

From November 2015 the Living Wage Foundation is launching a new national campaign  to build a real Living Wage movement across the UK.  A real Living Wage differs from the Living Wage recently announced by the Tory Government. The rates are higher, it applies to everyone over 18 (not just the over 25s) and there is a higher rate in place for  London.

Horsham Labour Party is keen to get involved in Living Wage Week ( 1st – 7th November 2015).  We are currently talking to other local political, business and charitable organisations to promote interest in forming an official Living Wage Campaign  Group for Horsham
District  with the  aim of  encouraging and supporting employers to pay the Living Wage as calculated by  GLA Economics and the Centre for Research in Social Policy.  This is a rate that reflects the true cost of living for all adults and if paid reduces reliance on some welfare benefits.

More information about the this National Week of Action is
available at www.livingwage.org.uk
All members who would like to hear more about this are welcome to our next CLP meeting on Monday 14 September 2015 (7.30pm) where it will be an agenda item.  The meeting is at
