Jersey's living wage has increased to £10.55 an hour.
The anti-poverty charity Caritas have calculated the figure based on the cost of living in the island.
The legal minimum wage remains at £7.88 an hour, meaning bosses do not have to adopt the Caritas recommendation.
A living wage is considered to be the minimum income necessary to meet food, housing and essential needs.
It has been increased in line with the living wage in London.
Former Deputy, Jennifer Bridge is to become the Team Leader for the Caritas Jersey Living Wage campaign.
