London mayor Boris Johnson has called on more businesses in the capital to sign up to the Living Wage initiative.
The rate in the capital was increased from £8.30 to £8.55 today.
We have a huge range of household names on board and I want to see more coming forward. I’m sure that the new Living Wage Foundation trademark will become a fantastic badge of honour for the capital’s employers and add further momentum to a campaign I wholeheartedly support.
