Pay the Real Living Wage!
Pay at least the Real Living Wage to all your staff. And seek Real Living Wage Accreditation.
Why is this important?
The Real Living Wage (RLW) is defined by The Methodist Church as: “the minimum hourly wage necessary for one person’s basic needs (such as food, clothing, utilities, transport, health care, and recreation) for an extended period of time, assuming that person works 40 hours a week and has no additional income.”
The RLW is presently £8.75/hr. We note that MHA employs 6,500 staff and made an operating surplus of £7.3 million in 2016.
We demand that MHA pay at least the RLW to all staff and seek RLW Accreditation.
