One in five in the East paid less than the living wage

More than one in five people in the East of England are receiving payment below the living wage. It's despite a rise of 20p in the hourly rate announced on Monday.

It's down to employers whether they pay the living wage rather than the lower minimum wage.

The number of companies signing up to this voluntary agreement has doubled in the past 12 months. A campaign has been launched for others to join them.

Children in East Anglia get lowest pocket money in Britain - but still outstrip their parents' wages

Children's pocket money has risen more than twice as fast as their parents' wages since 1987.

Research by Halifax has found that pocket money has risen four fold with the average child in Britain receiving £6.35 per week. Meanwhile their parents' wages have only risen by 188% in the same 27 year period.

Two thirds of children do chores to earn their pocket money, and nearly 9 out of 10 of the youngsters surveyed understood that adults get money from working.

But whilst children in London get the most pocket money, with an average of £8.26 per week, East Anglian pocket money is only £5.15, the lowest in Britain.
