As you may already know, at C3SC, we confirmed our commitment to the Living Wage Movement over one year ago. We are delighted to share that this week, First Minister, Mark Drakeford, is to announce the new Real Living Wage for Wales of £9.90 per hour (up from £9.50 per hour) with accredited employers and campaigners at the Living Wage Week Wales Launch on Monday 15th November.
The number of accredited Living Wage Employers in Wales has risen by 44% in the last year to 359, including C3SC, the Wales Millennium Centre, Dyfed-Powys Police and Coaltown Coffee. Much of this progress is as a result of the work of Cynnal Cymru, the Living Wage Foundation’s Accreditation Partner in Wales, which supports employers through the process of accreditation.
