Living Wage Week - the new rates are in! Posted on 19 Nov 15:24

Paper Tiger has been a Real Living Wage employer for many years, and has been a proud supporter of the campaign.  We’re also delighted to be a Living Wage Scotland accredited employer promoting #LivingWage and tackling low-pay through local action in Edinburgh. The city is bidding to double the number of Living Wage accredited businesses, and lift thousands of workers out of poverty wages. 

The new rate has just been announced for the coming year, rising from £9.50 to £9.90 - that represents an increase of 4.2%. That percentage increase is also enjoyed by salaried staff, to help them maintain their standard of living. 

Living Wage Week is a moment to examine how the businesses you admire, shop with - and even work for and work with - manage their own social and economic responsibilities toward their staff, partners and suppliers.  

Please shop with care, please shop with us.
