Glasgow City Council

Glasgow Living Wage

What is it?

The Glasgow Living Wage was originally launched in 2009 by Glasgow City Council to tackle in-work poverty. Employers throughout the city have been encouraged by the council to pay their staff a Living Wage. The idea behind the Living Wage is to encourage employers across the city to raise their own rates of pay - and those of contracted staff - to at least £7.85 an hour.

Who's it for?

Employers throughout Glasgow who are committed to building a better Glasgow by paying the Living Wage.

How do I apply?
