PENZANCE TOWN COUNCIL, A LIVING WAGE EMPLOYER
29 October 2013
Rob Simmons is reporting on his blog that Penzance town council has voted to move to being a living wage employer.
This is excellent news. My warm congratulations to Rob and those councillors that voted for this. I hope it works out well for everyone.
I realise the financial implications for Penzance council are relatively modest but I hope this spirit of social and financial justice reaches Cornwall Council.
