ABSTRACT

What is a living wage? 

  • The Living Wage is based on the concept that work should provide an adequate income to cover the necessary living costs of a family.
  • Calculated for a family, not a single worker
  • Based on actual expenses in a given community,
    and taxes and gov’t benefits
  • The motto of many living wage campaigns is to
    ‘make the minimum wage a living wage’
  • Living wage is voluntary, not legislated.
