Living wage funds agreed

Date posted: 04-03-2013

In July last year Thurrock Council unanimously agreed it should become a “Living Wage” employer – meaning that nobody employed by the council should earn less than (then) £7.20 and, today, £7.45 an hour.

Speaking during the budget debate, Leader Cllr John Kent, told Wednesday (27 February) evening’s meeting of the council: “I am pleased to say this budget means that from the 1st of April Thurrock Council will be a Living Wage employer – the money’s in this budget, but the vote’s yet to be taken and that happens next month.”
