What price a living wage?
David Cameron has described the living wage as ‘an idea whose time has come’, yet relatively few workers have secured higher wages as a result of a living wage campaign. This event brings together private and public sector employers, unions, campaigners and researchers to better understand thebenefits, costs and potential trade-offs of implementing a living wage.
Thursday 10 May, 9.00 (for 9.30 start) – 11.00
Resolution Foundation, 23 Savile Row, W1S 2ET
The Resolution Foundation and IPPR will also launch new analysis which reveals for the first time what the potential impact on wage bills of a living wage might be for employers across different industries.
We would like to thank the Trust for London and the TUC for their support of this project.
