Archbishop calls for action on living wage

Millions of workers will not benefit from the economic recovery unless they're paid a living wage - according to a report.

A commission chaired by the Archbishop of York Dr John Sentamu warns spiralling living costs and stagnating wages are creating a "double squeeze" on the lowest paid.

The living wage sees employees paid £7.65 while the minimum wage currently stands at £6.31.

Andy Walton from the Contextual Theology Centre told Premier's News Hour he agrees with the findings:

A Monthly Gift Of $11 Makes A World Of Difference

In a world of fake news there’s never been a greater need for quality Christian journalism. Premier’s mission is to provide the Church with the most up to date and relevant news, told from a Christian perspective. But we can’t do it without you.

Unlike many websites we haven't put up a paywall — we want to keep our journalism free at the point of need and as open as we can. Premier’s news output takes a lot of time, money and hard work to produce. No one in the USA is sharing news like we are across radio, magazines and online so please help us to continue that today.

For a monthly gift of $11 or more we’d also be able to send you a free copy of the brand new Premier Bible, a wonderful Anglicised version of the NLT packed with exclusive bonus content, reading plan and resources to help you get the most out of scripture.

Your monthly support will make a world of difference. Thank you.
