The 'Living Wage' is a voluntary hourly wage rate that employers can choose to pay their staff.
City of York Council is a Living Wage employer
The Living Wage is updated every year at the start of Living Wage Week and for locations outside London is currently set at £9.50 per hour. The Living Wage Foundation calculates this amount based on real costs of living and sets it at the level needed to afford a basic acceptable standard of life in the UK.
