Headline : UK Living Wage raised to £7.85 per hour.

 

 

Excerpt from the Link "The UK Living Wage - an hourly rate based on the amount needed to cover the basic costs of living - has been raised by 20p to £7.85.

The voluntary rate has been adopted by more than 1,000 employers across the country, benefiting 35,000 workers.

It is now 21% higher than the compulsory UK minimum wage, set at £6.50 by the government.

A new Living Wage rate for London, currently £8.80 an hour, will be announced later on Monday."

 

 

 

My thoughts :

 

Any raise is good but it does rest on what is extra in the persons pocket so I'll be watching if this affects me , my colleagues and family.

Probably cost them £100m to send out the information to all the tax payers.

Just think how much better off we would be if our taxes didn't go on families with 16 kids or foreign aid.
