150,000 workers to get pay rise

More than 150,000 workers who’s employers are signed up for the voluntary living wage rate are set to get a pay rise

Separate from the National Living Wage and the National Minimum Wage, the Voluntary Living Wage (VLW) is dictated by the Living Wage Foundation campaign group.

The rate is to rise by 30p an hour to £8.75. For those living in London, the rate will rise by 45p to £10.20 an hour.

About 3,600 firms are signed up to the scheme, including Ikea and Google.

Living Wage Foundation director Katherine Chapman urged more employers to sign up for the scheme, promising relief to workers who are being”squeezed” by stagnant wages and rising inflation.

A number of new companies have since announced their commitment to pay the living wage, including Heathrow Airport, the National Gallery and professional services firm JLL.
