Answered By: 
The Mayor

I would like to see all employers in London pay their staff at least the London Living Wage. I welcome the recent Living Wage accreditation of West Ham and encourage the remaining Premier League football clubs who aren't accredited to follow suit. Now that I have taken over the Olympic Stadium I intend to speed up their adoption of the Living Wage for all staff.
