We were in the city yesterday, talking to the public about the Real Living Wage which, as of yesterday, was announced as £8.75, and were spreading the word about its benefits and answering anyone’s questions or queries.
Keep listening to Future Radio, members of the public and team members of Living Wage Norwich were interviewed about why the Real Living Wage is so important to both individuals, businesses, and society.
Our intern will be on UEA campus all of Wednesday the 8th, finding out from students what the Real Living Wage means to them and why they feel it is so important.
Also on Wednesday, we are having a drinks reception at 5.30pm-7pm at the Forum. Speakers include Daniel Childerhouse (Future Projects), Tim Bishop (CEO – the Forum), Alan Waters (Leader Norwich City Council), and Stuart Wright (Director of Property & Facilities – Aviva) where local businesses can talk and learn about being and becoming Real Living Wage accredited employers.
UEA’s Matthew Aldrich will be giving a Living Wage talk at City Hall Council Chamber on Thursday 9th November at 19.15.
The Writers Centre Norwich will also be giving Living Wage themed readings in the Council Chamber at 12.30 – 13.30 on Friday 10th November.
And if that wasn’t enough, there will also be a Living Wage themed day at the Forum on Thursday from 9.30am with Unison and GMB.
Come and join in with some of our events, learn, chat, and meet the team!
