Lewes for a Living Wage

A recent new member to the Lewes Town Partnership, Lewes for a Living Wage is a small group who want Lewes to be a Living Wage Town, so that many more businesses will sign up. Organiser Ann Link says “This would have great benefits in reducing poverty and helping the local economy, and it has also been shown to help employers, who have found staff stay longer and have less time off sick. If people had a little more money to spend, it would benefit the local economy generally. We are approaching employers and hope soon to have a website to list those locally who pay the Living Wage, currently £7.85 per hour.”
