Salford City Council is part of the campaign to make Salford a Living Wage City.
As the first council in Greater Manchester to pay the full Living Wage and be accredited as a Living Wage employer, we want to see more local people lifted out of poverty pay. Salford is the fastest growing economy in Greater Manchester attracting billions of pounds of investment every year. Becoming a Living Wage city is all about making sure everyone benefits from Salford’s phenomenal growth.
Organisations which have introduced the real Living Wage have seen significant improvements in staff motivation and productivity, the quality of work and reductions in staff absence and turnover, making them more efficient and profitable. Valuing staff in this way is also welcomed by customers.
If your employer isn’t paying you the real Living Wage or you’re a business owner who wants to know more, please see this handy guide and series of frequently asked questions.
If your employer is paying you less than the minimum wage or national living wage, you can get help from the Citizen’s Advice Bureau.
