United Kingdom -Living wage findings in Northern Ireland -March 25, 2014

The Nevin Economic Research Institute (NERI) published its latest Quarterly Economic Observer that examines the extent of low pay across Northern Ireland finding that 25% of workers earn less than the ‘Living Wage’. The research found that young people, women and those in part-time work are most at risk of falling below a decent wage level. It also found that low pay is widespread in sectors such as accommodation, food, retail, residential and social care.
