Jersey States set to adopt living wage

Everyone doing work for the States of Jersey will be paid the living wage in the future, if politicians approve plans this week.

The government already pays all of its direct employees at least £9.75 per hour - more than two pounds higher than the minimum wage.

The Council of Ministers has agreed plans to extend this to anyone who works in States buildings, such as cleaning companies.

If voted through by States members, the plans are predicted to cost up to £1 millon to implement.
