Council to host business breakfast as part of Living Wage Week

Coins in a purse

Published: Wednesday, 16th October 2019

We are showing our support for Living Wage Week (11-15 November) by hosting a business breakfast event for local firms.

We established and play a leading role in the Scottish Borders Living Wage Group, which is encouraging all employers based in the Scottish Borders to pay all their employees the real Living Wage, currently £9 per hour.

The group is hosting a business breakfast on Wednesday 13 November between 8am and 10am.

Any business that would like to come along or that are interested in finding out more about the real Living Wage can contact Councillor Tatler to confirm their attendance.

Councillor Robin Tatler, Chair of Scottish Borders Living Wage Group

“We are inviting representatives from all local businesses to come along to find out more about the real Living Wage and hear about the experience of employers and employees who are already paying and receiving it.

“The Council supports the principle of a Living Wage and pays all in scope employees the Scottish National Living Wage. We are currently seeking accreditation as a Living Wage employer and would encourage other employers in the Borders to do so.”
