MK LEADERS LAUNCH LIVING WAGE VISION
At an event organised by Citizens:mk and hosted by KPMG during Living Wage Week last month, an audience of 50 guests from government, business and voluntary groups, heard Council Leader Peter Marland say: “MK should become the first Living Wage city.”
KPMG's Mike Kelly said: “MK could become the UK's first Living Wage city...a zone in which at least 75% of employees are paid the Living Wage, at least 75% of employers are Accredited Living Wage employers and at least 75% of the commercial space is covered by such agreements."
After the event, Living Wage supporters went on a short action walk to thank and give cookies to employers on Silbury Boulevard who have responded to a recent Living Wage Survey.
After the action walk, a large group of Living Wage supporters, including the Mayor of Milton Keynes, gathered outside the City Church for a celebration photo (above). The Bishop of Buckingham said: “It is good to see people turning out to raise awareness of social inequality and do something about it.”
