What is a Living Wage?

 

A living wage is based on the principle that full-time work should provide families with a basic level of economic security, not keep them in poverty. It is the amount needed for a family of four with two parents working full-time to pay for basic necessities, support the healthy development of their children, escape financial stress and participate in their communities.

Kingston has a group of people working on a Living Wage campaign. See their website here:     http://livingwagekingston.wordpress.com/living-wage/
