In the United Kingdom, over 150,000 workers got a pay rise this month as the British living wage, which is paid voluntarily by more than 3,600 employers, is increased against a backdrop of rising transport, food and housing costs. The pay rate will rise 3.6% to £8.75 per hour around the UK and 4.6% to £10.20 in London, giving a wages boost to workers at companies which have adopted the measure, including Google and IKEA. Living Wage Foundation director Katherine Chapman urged more employers to sign up to the scheme. "In-work poverty is today's story," she said. "The new living wage rates will bring relief for thousands of UK workers being squeezed by stagnant wages and rising inflation." The living wage is separate from the government's compulsory National Minimum Wage (NMW) and the National Living Wage (NLW). The National Living Wage, which was introduced in April last year for workers aged 25 and above, is currently set at £7.50 an hour. Young people under 25, are still paid the lower National Minimum Wage.
