Answer for Living Wage Foundation resources

Answered By: 
The Mayor

It has been agreed that my officers will work closely with the Living Wage Foundation to promote my London Living Wage Campaign.  Officers in the Economic & Business Policy Unit and GLA Economics are supporting the development of a joint workplan with the Living Wage Foundation for the year ahead which will include writing letters to businesses, meetings with employers and the calculation of the new rate of London's Living Wage. I will support the promotion of the new London Living Wage rate during Living Wage Week which is being organised by the Living Wage Foundation to take place in November this year.
