The majority of people living in poverty in the UK are from "working households", according to the chair of the Living Wage Commission.
The Archbishop of York said:
Working and still living in poverty is a national scandal. For the first time, the majority of people in poverty in the UK are now in working households.
The campaign for a Living Wage has been a beacon of hope for the millions of workers on low wages struggling to make ends meet.
If the Government now commits to making this hope a reality, we can take a major step towards ending the strain on all of our consciences. Low wages equals living in poverty.
