Project Description

The voluntary or real living wage is an increasingly important public policy issue to ameliorate cost of living increases. It is an essential component of responsible business and workplace inclusivity. Accredited living wage employers view it as the right and ethical thing to do, and it makes good business sense. However, we need to know more about worker experiences of the real living wage in places like Birmingham. Applying a place-based approach, the PhD will involve qualitative interviews with workers in the Birmingham area assessing the effects of the living wage on working conditions, personal lives and living standards.
