Thousands of workers to get Christmas pay boost

Thousands of UK workers will enjoy a pre-Christmas pay bump if their employer is a member of the voluntary “real living wage” campaign.

Businesses who have signed up to the scheme will lift their UK hourly rate by 30p to £9.30, while in London the rate will rise by 20p to £10.75.

It’s important to note that the scheme is separate to the statutory National Living Wage for workers aged 25 and above, which currently stands at £8.21 an hour.

The Living Wage Foundation said its “real” pay rate – which applies to all employees over 18 – is calculated independently and is based on costs such as food, clothing and household bills.
