Make the Commonwealth Games a Living Wage Employer

by Liam Byrne | 28.03.19 | in: Latest Petition

To: Sports Minister, Mimms Davies MP

Dear Mims
Please let the Commonwealth Games Organising Committee Become An Accredited Living Wage Employer
We the undersigned call on the government to ensure the Commonwealth Games Organising Committee is an employer accredited by the Living Wage Foundation – paying all directly employed staff and contractors a minimum of £9/ hour.
In our region, over 571,000 workers earn less than the real Living Wage – and only 1/ 1,000 businesses are accredited by the Living Wage Foundation. This is one big reason why the number of children living in poverty in families where someone is working is going UP.

We want our city to become a Living Wage City – and we want the Commonwealth Games to part of making that happen.

We look forward to your reply.

Yours,

Please let the Commonwealth Games Organising Committee Become An Accredited Living Wage Employer
