P. Prowse, Ray Fells

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

A recent development in addressing the longstanding problem of low pay in the United Kingdom has been the emergence of a social campaign for a 'living wage'. Using a case study approach this article explores an employer's decision to pay the living wage that, in turn, provided both challenges and opportunities for the unions in their dealings with contractors.
