A Living Wage is intended to establish an hourly wage rate that should provide employees with sufficient income to achieve an agreed acceptable minimum standard of living. In recent years, the concept of Living Wage has entered the political and public discourse and this seminar provides an opportunity to explore the context, strategies, options and challenges around achieving a Living Wage for workers in Ireland.
The Living Wage Technical Group was established in March 2014 and worked to establish a methodology for calculating the Republic of Ireland Living Wage – launched in July 2014.
