Making Music has today been accredited as a Living Wage employer.
Their Living Wage commitment will see everyone working at Making Music, regardless of whether they are direct employees or third-party contracted staff; receive a minimum hourly wage of £8.75 in the UK or £10.20 in London. Both rates are significantly higher than the statutory minimum for over 25s of £7.50 per hour introduced in April 2017.
The real Living Wage is an hourly rate set independently and updated annually. The Living Wage is calculated according to the real costs of living.
Barbara Eifler, Making Music Chief Executive said:
Making Music is delighted to have been recognised as a Living Wage employer. We passionately believe that people should be paid properly for their work and that only a living wage guarantees access to work for everyone.
Employers choose to pay the real Living Wage on a voluntary basis. The Living Wage enjoys cross-party political support.
