Paying a Living Wage

In a recent column for the Independent i, Archbishop of York John Sentamu addressed the importance of providing workers with the Living Wage. He says it is a social issue that will help move toward a fairer society. He notes that the Living Wage Commission he chaired found that five million people who earned at least the minimum wage may still require supplementary benefit or have to use food banks.

John Sentamu is right, that’s why I was more than happy to vote on Lydiate Parish Council to adopt payment of the Living Wage.
