A LIVING wage should be considered in Jersey to help the Island’s lowest paid workers who are struggling to pay for basic things like food and heating, according to a States Deputy.
Deputy Geoff Southern has called on ministers to investigate the possibility of introducing a living wage, an hourly figure that is separate to the minimum wage and takes into account costs of living as well as the basic expenses involved in supporting a family.
London currently has a living wage of £8.55 an hour, which is considered the threshold at which people can live above the poverty level in the capital with a sufficient safety net to also provide for quality of life.
