Answer for London Living Wage (1)

Answered By: 
The Mayor

My Deputy Mayor for Business and I have met with hundreds of businesses and organisations spanning retail, hospitality, life sciences, higher education, tech, creative, banking, financial and professional services and more, and we will continue to promote the benefits of the London Living Wage and campaign for more employers to pay it, especially through my Good Work Standard. I want employers from all sectors - both big and small - and from across the capital - to engage with the principles of my Good Work Standard when it launches later this year.
