What is the Oxford Living Wage?

The Oxford Living Wage is the minimum amount per hour needed to live in this city. It is currently set at £10.21 per hour and is reviewed every November by Oxford City Council. It is a voluntary rate, but we consider it every employer’s moral duty to pay and every worker’s right.

It is different from the legal ‘National Minimum Wage’, and separate from the Living Wage Foundation’s ‘Real Living Wage’.
