The campaign for a real Living Wage has helped hundreds of thousands of workers to earn a wage they can live on, above the government minimum. But while the campaign has put an extra £1 Billion back into the pockets of low paid workers, millions of low paid workers are struggling to get the hours they need to make ends meet. In response, the Living Wage Foundation has developed a new ‘standard of what good looks like’ for those employers that can offer ‘Living Hours’ alongside a real Living Wage.
Join Tyne & Wear Citizens during Living Wage Week to find out more about the local movement taking practical action to increase the number of Living Wage and Living Hours Accredited Employers both locally and further afield. This campaigning workshop will hear from community leaders who have successfully trebled the number of Living Wage employers in the region, and explore the practical steps one can take as part of this movement.
Please note: This event is ticketed, but free to attend. Our workshop will take place at Tyneside Cinema Pop-Up Film School on Pilgrim Street.
