Real Living Wage increase - and a new local business signed up

In November 2020 the new real Living Wage increased by 20p to £9.50 per hour outside London (see https://livingwage.org.uk/). Unlike the government minimum of age 25, this rate applies to people aged 18 and over.

More than 30 Lewes employers have signed up to pay the Living Wage rate (click on the 'Signed up' tab for a list); a welcome new local entrant is Richard Green Funeral Service  https://rgreenfs.co.uk).

In these unprecedented times, support for a real Living Wage is more meaningful than ever, and we send our best wishes to all of you and thanks for your support.
