= LIVING WAGES CAMPAIGN

We are thrilled to have cross party support for our JustPay! campaign as well as backing from our campaign partners and investor supporters:

 

Boris Johnson, Mayor of London

   On the London Living Wage: "This is not only morally right but also makes good business sense, contributing to better recruitment and retention of staff, higher productivity, and a more loyal workforce with high morale"
     

    Ed Miliband, Leader of the Labour Party

   "I support the call for Britain's largest companies to pay a living wage to all of their employees - and congratulate those companies who have already decided to do so. Not only is it what people deserve but companies who have already embraced the living wage have shown that it's good for business too - boosting productivity and increasing staff retention."
     

Simon Hughes, Deputy Leader of the Liberal Democrats

 

"In my maiden speech to Parliament I quoted one of my predecessors, Dr Salter, saying: ‘In a civilised society every worker has a right to a living wage'. That is as true today as it was then.

"For Britain's largest firms, who have faced criticism from society and shareholders alike for the millions paid to their top executives, it is hard to maintain the argument that the Living Wage is unaffordable. I am therefore delighted to support ShareAction's JustPay! campaign to embed Living Wage standards across the FTSE 100."

     

 

Caroline Lucas, Leader of the Green Party

    ‘I am very pleased to support ShareAction's JustPay! campaign for Living Wages in the UK. With the top 0.1% of the UK's population set to earn 14% of national income by 2030 while pay for those languishing at the bottom does not even keep up with the cost of living, it is time that Britain's biggest companies paid their workers Living Wages. ShareAction's campaign will make a real difference to the lives of some of the lowest-paid workers in Britain, helping to address the scandal of an ever-growing gap between rich and poor.'

We are very grateful for the tremendous support we have recieved from our campaign partners:
