Accreditation as Glasgow Living Wage Employer
Glasgow Together is delighted to announce accreditation as a Glasgow Living Wage employer. This ensures that all of our staff will receive no less than £7.85 per hour for their valued contribution to our success.
This figure is based on research carried out by the Joseph Rowntree Foundation which looked at developing a formula for calculating a minimum income standard. For their purposes, a Living Wage could be defined as the level of income needed to provide an acceptable standard of living in Britain to ensure good health, adequate child development and social inclusion. Following detailed research, they concluded that the living wage for a single working age adult in the UK was £6.88 an hour. In line with other socially responsible employers in Glasgow we are happy to exceed this and meet the Glasgow Living Wage level of £7.85.
