Six Town has been accredited as a Living Wage Employer. Our Living Wage commitment will see everyone working at Six Town Housing receive a minimum hourly wage of £9.90, significantly higher than the government minimum for over 23s, which currently stands at £8.91 per hour.
We are committed to pay the real Living Wage and deliver a fair day’s pay for a hard day’s work.
The real Living Wage is the only rate calculated according to the costs of living. It provides a voluntary benchmark for employers that wish to ensure their staff earn a wage they can live on, not just the government minimum. Since 2011 the Living Wage movement has delivered a pay rise to over 300,000 people and put over £1.6 billion extra into the pockets of low paid workers.
Katherine Chapman, Director, Living Wage Foundation said:
“We’re delighted that Six Town Housing has joined the movement of almost 9,000 responsible employers across the UK who voluntarily commit to go further than the government minimum to make sure all their staff earn enough to live on.
“They join thousands of small businesses, as well as household names. These businesses recognise that paying the real Living Wage is the mark of a responsible employer and they, like Six Town Housing, believe that a hard day’s work deserves a fair day’s pay."
