United Kingdom -Lidl will also pay Northern Ireland workers living wages -October 08, 2015

The supermarket chain Lidl has reversed its position not to include workers in Northern Ireland in the pay rise it has awarded to workers in the rest of the UK. Last month, Lidl said it would introduce a living wage of £8.20 an hour, or £9.35 an hour in London. However, Northern Ireland staff workers were excluded. The company has added that a similar pay commitment is being made to staff in the Republic of Ireland.
