Are you struggling to make ends meet with your current wage?




Are you, like many others, struggling to make ends meet with your current wage? The National Living Wage (NLW) in the UK, this week, will be going up to £10.42 per hour for workers aged 23 and over, but many people believe that this is not enough to cover the cost of living, especially in expensive areas like our major cities. However, there is an alternative: the Real Living Wage (RLW) in Scotland.


The RLW is calculated based on the actual cost of living in Scotland, including essential expenses like housing, food, and transportation. It's currently set at £10.90 per hour, which is higher than the NLW, and will be reviewed again in line with inflation in September. While it's voluntary, many employers in Scotland have chosen to adopt it as their minimum wage because they care about their employees' well-being.


If you're struggling to make ends meet, it's important to know that you deserve a fair wage that enables you to take care of yourself and your family. The RLW is a fairer and more sustainable wage for workers, and it can improve your overall well-being and quality of life.


While the RLW is voluntary, many employers in Scotland have chosen to adopt it as their minimum wage because they care about their employees' well-being. In fact, over 1,000 employers in Scotland currently pay the RLW, including major companies like SSE, Standard Life Aberdeen, and Nationwide. So, if you're looking for a job or considering switching to a new employer, it's worth checking if they pay the RLW.


Ultimately, you deserve a wage that reflects the true cost of living. That’s why all vacancies with Recruitment Bee are always above the Real Living Wage. And we believe if more businesses across the UK adopted it, it could have a positive impact on the well-being of workers and the economy as a whole. So, let's stand up for fair wages and advocate for the Real Living Wage.


You deserve it!
