Over 250,000 people who work for an employer who has voluntarily signed up to the “real living wage” are set for a pay boost of 20p to £9.50 an hour.
This is not to be confused with the compulsory National Living Wage, which is currently £8.72 an hour for anyone over the age of 25.
Real living wage employers in London will pay £10.85 an hour, a 10p rise.
The increase is designed to help workers and families through the pandemic. https://www.livingwage.org.uk/what-real-living-wage
