What is the Oxford Living Wage?

The Oxford Living Wage is the minimum amount per hour needed to live in this city. It is set at £10.50 per hour (April 2022) and is reviewed every November by Oxford City Council. Because Oxford is such an expensive city it is set at 95% of the London Living Wage. It is a not legally enforceable which is why our links with trade unions are so important. We consider it every employer’s moral duty to pay as a minimum and every worker’s right.

It is different from the legal ‘National Minimum Wage’.
