Living wage report

A report from the Resolution Foundation and the Institute for Public Policy Research has called for the creation of "living wage" zones in which a proportion of savings that accrue to the Treasury, as a result of the living wage being paid by local public sector employers, would be fed back to those local authorities to encourage spreading the living wage into the private sector. The report suggests that under these "living wage City Deals" local authorities would get the cash on condition that they agreed to work with local businesses to increase wages to living wage levels.
