This week is ‘Living Wage Week’, when we celebrate and renew our public commitment to ensuring that as many employers as possible pay the ‘real living wage’ … which is higher than the government’s living wage rate. The new hourly rate, which Empowerment will implement on 1st April 2021 will be £9.50.
One of Empowerment’s key values is ‘justice’, by being part of the real living wage movement we demonstrate our passion for wage justice. For such small organisations as Empowerment, this is by no means an easy commitment, but it is the right thing to do!
We would encourage other employers especially in Blackpool and the Fylde Coast to join the movement! More details can be found here: https://www.livingwage.org.uk/living-wage-week
