Archbishop of York wants "living wage" by 2020

One million people should be helped out of low pay, according to a group chaired by the Archbishop of York. 

The Living Wage Commission's year-long review says firms should be encouraged to pay £7.65 an hour, or £8.80 in London - rather than the minimum hourly wage of £6.31.

It's concerned families are becoming too reliant on food banks and "unsustainable debt".

Tom Skinner is co-ordinator of the Greater Manchester Living Wage Campaign and told Premier's News Hour why thinks employers have a duty to pay it.

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.
