The Living Wage is an hourly rate, set independently, every year (by the GLA in London). It is calculated according to cost of living and gives the minimum pay rate required for a worker to provide their family with the essentials of life.

The Living Wage Campaign, launched by the charity Citizens UK in 2001, calls for every worker in the country to earn the living wage - which will lift many families out of working poverty.
