Do you think work should be the surest way out of poverty? 


The Living wage is an hourly rate calculated to cover the basic essentials of living, like housing, like housing, food and transport. It aims to raise people out of poverty.

The campaign was started by parents in east London who were fed up with working multiple minimum wage jobs and still struggling to make ends meet or have time with their children.

Today over 2,500 employers throughout the UK and the Channel islands proudly display the Living Wage Employers Mark. Trough their responsible leadership they’ve lifted thousands out of poverty.

Employers pay the Living Wage because they know people are the lifeblood of any business.

They also reap business benefits, like lower absenteeism, lover turnover and improved customer satisfaction. The Living Wage we promote is voluntary and separate to both the UK’s ‘national living wage’ and to the minimum wage set by the States of Jersey.

In Jersey, people want to see the Living Wage on their high streets.

In UK 



By working with business leaders, voluntary groups and individual champions across the Islands, we celebrate Living Wage employers and encourage others to follow their lead.
