First carboot of the season

File photo dated 10/01/07 of money as one in five British workers are paid less than the living wage, a study has shown. PRESS ASSOCIATION Photo. Issue date: Monday October 29, 2012. Some 4.82 million UK workers receive less than the living wage, the rate of pay designed to enable workers to afford a basic standard of living, the KPMG research showed. The rate is currently �8.30 an hour in London and �7.20 in the rest of the country, compared with the national minimum wage rate of �6.19 an hour. At a time of economic hardship, lower paid workers are feeling the impact hardest, the accountancy firm said, with more than four in 10 (41%) saying that their finances are worse now than they were just one month ago. The living wage is a voluntary rate of pay that some employers give their staff and since 2001 it has positively impacted more than 10,000 employees and their families and redistributed over �96 million to some of the lowest paid workers in the UK, KPMG said.
