Real Living Wage increases to £9.50 per hour

The real Living Wage is a recommended UK wage rate which aims to better meet the financial needs of workers than the statutory National Living Wage. Currently paid voluntarily by over 7,000 employers, it was announced on 9 November 2020 that the real Living Wage will increase by 10p to £10.85 for London and by 20p to £9.50 for the rest of the UK to support workers and families during the economic crisis deriving from COVID-19 pandemic. Over 700 additional employers have signed up to the real Living Wage since the start of lockdown in March 2020.
