Lidl to pay all staff recommended Living Wage
Lidl UK has announced that on 1 October it will become the first British supermarket to adopt the recommended Living Wage. This means that all Lidl UK employees will receive a minimum of £8.20 per hour across England, Scotland and Wales, and £9.35 per hour in London. The move will cost Lidl £9m, with 53% of Lidl UK’s 17,000 workforce benefiting from the rise. Lidl has experienced a record year with sales of more than £4bn.
