Billy Bowie Special Projects Ltd, recently became an accredited living wage employer. Living Wage accreditation formally recognises and celebrates employers who choose to go further than the government minimum.
The real Living Wage is an independently calculated rate based on the cost of living and is paid voluntarily by employers.
It is calculated each year in November by The Resolution Foundation on an analysis of the wage that employees need to earn in order to afford the basket of goods required for a decent standard of living. This basket of goods includes housing, childcare, transport and heating costs.
We believe that the real Living Wage is good for business, good for workers and good for society.
