Chancellor's National Living Wage "many miles away from what you actually need to live on in London" - Fiona Twycross AM

Responding to analysis from the Centre for London on the impact of the Government’s new National Living Wage, Labour London Assembly Economy Spokesperson, Fiona Twycross AM, said:

“The Government’s ‘Living Wage’ is many miles away from what you actually need to live on in the capital. It’s a purely half-hearted gesture that risks condemning people to poverty by removing the incentive for businesses to pay a true London Living Wage.

“With the cost of Living in London so high, we’re in need a far more ambitious approach for the capital. Anything short of a true London Living Wage will undoubtedly leave thousands of low paid workers struggling to get by in the capital.”
