From invisible workforce to key workers: why the real Living Wage matters now more than ever
Tuesday 2nd November 12:00 - 12:30
For the first time in the 20 years of the Living Wage movement, employers from across sectors and industries are recognising the crucial role cleaning operatives and other historically low paid yet essential workers play in running their businesses. With record numbers of organisations publicly signing up to the Living Wage Foundation and with a growth in demand for front line workers in cleaning, catering and security, could now be the perfect time to champion the real Living Wage in your contracts?
