What is the Living Wage?

The Brighton & Hove Living Wage Campaign encourages local businesses to voluntarily pay all employees the real Living Wage instead of the government’s national minimum.

The Living Wage is set independently and calculated annually, based on the amount a person needs to live to a reasonable standard.

The current real Living Wage is £12.00 per hour. The new rate is announced every November and businesses are given until 1st of April to implement the new rate.

We support and encourage local businesses to voluntarily commit to paying their employees the Living Wage.
