Answered By: 
The Mayor

I believe that it is most important that employees pay their staff properly and for that reason I am a strong proponent of the London Living Wage. I am pleased that there are currently 668 fully accredited Living Wage employers in London and I will continue my push to for more businesses to become accredited.
