Liv­ing wage 5

Daily Mirror - - NEWS -

Ev­ery week in this col­umn, we cel­e­brate five com­pa­nies will­ing to pay the real Liv­ing Wage. This is a vol­un­tary rate set by the in­de­pen­dent Liv­ing Wage Foun­da­tion, which is higher than the Gov­ern­ment’s ‘na­tional liv­ing wage’. This week we par­tic­u­larly wel­come five com­pa­nies all from Scot­land: Jerba Cam­per­vans in North Ber­wick, Water­miser wa­ter­cool­ers in Newmilns, Dundee Plant Com­pany civil engi­neer­ing, The Care In­spec­torate in Dundee and O’Neil Gas Ser­vices in Ayr­shire, East Kil­bride and South Glas­gow.

It took a pe­ti­tion set up by griev­ing rel­a­tives and pushed by Stor­mzy to get there, but twice this week Par­lia­ment was forced to de­bate the Gren­fell fire.

One of the best things to emerge was the sol­i­dar­ity felt by Liver­pool MPs Ali­son Mc­Gov­ern and Dan Car­den, who have fought for years along­side Hills­bor­ough fam­i­lies.

They are now calling for a Hills­bor­ough Law to pun­ish of­fi­cials guilty of cover-ups and to give rel­a­tives more power.
