Southwark Greens launch campaign to end poverty wages

No household with a parent at work should be living in poverty, but an shows that six in ten households in the UK suffer that fate. As families struggle with high energy and food prices, and with a recession looming, the Southwark Green Party have launched a campaign to end working poverty in our Borough. We are calling on Southwark Council to pay all employees, direct and subcontracted, the London Living Wage, and to promote the Living Wage Employer’s Award throughout the Borough. Lewisham and Oxford Green Parties have pioneered this campaign, now we’re hoping to take it one step further in Southwark with a council commitment and Green campaigning in the private sector.
