Voluntary Living Wage Rate increase

Added on Tuesday 7 Nov 2017

 As of 6 November 2017 the Voluntary Living Wage rate has increased above the rate of inflation.  New rates are:

- London £10.20 per hour (increase of 45p) .  Rest of UK £8.75 (increase of 30p)

This compares with the current statutory National Living Wage (NLW) for over 25s of £7.50 per hour and the statutory National Minimum Wage (NMW) of £7.05 for 21-24 year olds

About 3,000 UK firms pay the Voluntary Living Wage.  However, 1 in 5 UK workers are paid below the Voluntary Living Wage.
