Boost for living wage campaign in Brighton and Hove
A living wage campaign has signed up a new employer.
The Brighton House Bed and Breakfast in Regency Squares has agreed to pay all its employees at least £7.45 per hour.
The Brighton and Hove Living Wage campaign is run on behalf of the city council by the Brighton and Hove Chamber of Commerce.
Campaign manager Tracey Allen said: “The campaign has now been running for just over a year and we are delighted that to date 78 businesses have signed up.
“It’s very encouraging to see how the Living Wage campaign is growing and reaching more sectors. Even those that we know traditionally pay lower rates are looking at changing this and paying the £7.45 per hour.
“The more businesses that look to achieve this – especially those in the retail, hospitality and catering sector – the better it will be for those employees and their families.
“Equally for these sectors and the whole business community, if we can pay better salaries we can employ and keep more skilled labour within the city.”
