The business case for the living wage
Ethically, few would argue that paying the living wage is not a step in the right direction. But does it make business sense?
Blue Arrow’s latest whitepaper attempts to answer this question. Insights include:
• How the living wage has reduced staff turnover and recruitment costs for a variety of businesses
• Why many experts think the living wage will & lsquo;destroy jobs and increase poverty’
• How the more than 5 million UK workers in the UK currently paid less than the living wage are being subsidised by taxpayers
It’s a polarising issue. Politicians routinely support it, while evidence suggests it improves employee productivity. But for businesses that rely heavily on lower-paid workers, do the benefits really outweigh the costs?
