James Johnson-Flint, Director of Zero Hours Justice, said: “Zero Hours Justice was founded to campaign against the use of zero hours contracts and the insecurity they bring in terms of hours and pay. By demonstrating our commitment to pay the Living Wage, we are putting our money where are mouth is and making sure our own staff are paid fairly.”
Katherine Chapman, Director, Living Wage Foundation said: “We’re delighted that Zero Hours Justice has joined the movement of over 6,000 responsible employers across the UK who voluntarily commit to go further than the government minimum to make sure all their staff earn enough to live on.
“They join thousands of small businesses, as well as household names such as Burberry, Barclays, Chelsea and Everton Football Clubs, Lush, and many more. These businesses recognise that paying the real Living Wage is the mark of a responsible employer and they, like Zero Hours Justice, believe that a hard day’s work deserves a fair day’s pay. "
If you work of an employer who believes that staff should be paid enough to live on, then why not show your commitment by becoming accredited as a Living Wage Employer
