Reducing In-Work Poverty: The Living Wage Campaign in the UK

The Living Wage Campaign was launched by members of London Citizens, part of the Citizens UK network in 2001. In recent years the campaign has grown in prominence across the UK with over a thousand organisations now accredited as Living Wage employers.
