We are currently part way through this year's Living Wage Week (Sunday 30th October - Saturday 5th November) and there is good news to report!
The current rates are £9.40 in London and £8.25 in the rest of the UK, but from this week the new rates will be £9.75 in London and £8.45 everywhere else.
The purpose of the week is to raise awareness about the need for a Living Wage and to celebrate responsible employers who pay it.
At the YCW we are committed to promoting the Living Wage as an essential part of ensuring dignity at work.
The video below features an excellent explanation of the theology behind paying a fair wage and is presented by former YCW member Dr Anna Rowlands.
