We are delighted to announce that Connected Together is now an accredited Living Wage Employer! This means that every member of staff working for Connected Together will earn a real Living Wage.
In April 2016 the government introduced a higher minimum wage rate for all staff over 25 years of age inspired by the Living Wage campaign.
However, the government’s ‘national living wage’ is not calculated according to what employees and their families need to live.
The real Living Wage rates are higher because they are independently-calculated based on what people need to get by.
The Living Wage Foundation encourages all employers that can afford to do so to ensure their employees earn a wage that meets the costs of living, not just the government minimum.
Connected Together has been acknowledged as an employer that provides above the ‘national living wage’ for its employees to ensure they are able to earn enough to live on.
Nearly 6000 organisations voluntarily choose to pay the real Living Wage because we believe that a hard day’s work deserves a fair day’s pay. You can find other organisations who pay the Living Wage here.
