Zero Hours Justice Celebrates Commitment to Real Living Wage

By: Zero Hours Justice Ltd
YORK, U.K. - Oct. 28, 2020 - PRLog -- Zero Hours Justice has today accredited as a Living Wage Employer. Our Living Wage commitment will see everyone working at Zero Hours Justice receive a minimum hourly wage of £9.30 in the UK or £10.75 in London. Both rates are significantly higher than the government minimum for over 25s, which currently stands at £8.72 per hour.

Since its launch in January 2020, Zero Hours Justice has always paid its staff significantly more than the Living Wage. By becoming a Living Wage Employer, Zero Hours Justice is committing to continuing its practice of fair pay for its staff.

The real Living Wage is the only rate calculated according to the costs of living. It provides a voluntary benchmark for employers that wish to ensure their staff earns a wage they can live on, not just the government minimum. Since 2011 the Living Wage movement has delivered a pay rise to over 230,000 people and put over £1 billion extra into the pockets of low paid workers.

James Johnson-Flint, Director of Zero Hours Justice, said: "Zero Hours Justice was founded to campaign against the use of zero hours contracts and the insecurity they bring. By demonstrating our commitment to pay the Living Wage, we are putting our money where are mouth is and making sure our staff are paid fairly."

Katherine Chapman, Director, Living Wage Foundation said: "We're delighted that Zero Hours Justice has joined the movement of over 6000 responsible employers across the UK who voluntarily commit to go further than the government minimum to make sure all their staff earn enough to live on.

"They join thousands of small businesses, as well as household names such as Burberry, Barclays, Chelsea and Everton Football Clubs, Lush, and many more. These businesses recognise that paying the real Living Wage is the mark of a responsible employer and they, like Zero Hours Justice, believe that a hard day's work deserves a fair day's pay. "
