provides a voluntary benchmark for employers that wish to ensure their staff earn a
wage they can live on, not just the government minimum. Since it began, the Living
Wage movement has delivered a pay rise to over 350,000 people and put over £2 billion
extra into the pockets of low paid workers.
Becoming Living Wage employer has been part of our Best In Class Employer strategy
for some time now. We are extremely proud to be in the forefront of this initiative withing
the Commercial Cleaning industry in our area.
We want to work with The Best, therefore is only right to be the best paying employer
COMMITMENT TO REAL LIVING WAGE
Katherine Chapman, Director, Living Wage Foundation said: “We’re delighted that
FINECLEAN has joined the movement of over 12,000 responsible employers across the
UK who voluntarily commit to go further than the government minimum to make sure all
their staff earn enough to live on.
“They join thousands of small businesses, as well as household names such as
Burberry, Barclays, Everton Football Club and many more. These businesses recognize
that paying the real Living Wage is the mark of a responsible employer and they, like
FINECLEAN, believe that a hard day’s work deserves a fair day’s pay.”
