As part of Living Wage Week 2016 activities, the new UK and London Living Wage rates for 2016/2017 were announced this morning. The new UK rate is an increase of 20 pence to £8.45 per hour. Current Living Wage employers have until 1st April 2017 to implement this new rate. For more information see http://www.livingwage.org.uk
Lewes will celebrate the Week a little later, with a lunch for employers on 2nd December in the Town Hall. Watch this space for more details.
