The Living Wage group needs your help!

We are planning to visit lots of local businesses before the end of July to talk about the real Living Wage (£8.25 outside London) and help them sign up to it. Many employers already pay the LW and if they sign up it will encourage others to think about it, and begin to make a real difference to pay rates locally.
Come to a short briefing meeting in central Lewes on Tuesday 5th July at 7.30pm. Ring Linda Lamont on 01273 470940 or email Ann Link

The briefing will identify a list of businesses, especially on the High Street, that we think may already be sympathetic to the ideas. There will be a broad "script" to help volunteers introduce themselves. Also we will be able to offer some information on union membership to employees if appropriate. Asking businesses to sign up might also lead to us offering help in registering them on the website.
