Employers choose to pay the real Living Wage on a voluntary basis, recognising the value of their workers and ensuring that a hard day’s work receives a fair day’s pay. Right now, is when standing by these values matters the most and employers who do right by workers and families are the ones that will help lead us through and out of this crisis
