LIVING WAGE SPREADS IN CORNWALL

19 June 2014

Good news about the living wage. Camborne town council decided on 12 June 2014 to pay the living wage from next April.

The council is a very small employer and the effect on its budget is minor but I congratulate the council on making a decision for social justice. Minute particulars, as Blake said.

Warm congratulations to Robert Webber, the Labour councillor who proposed the town council move to a living wage.

Slowly the living wage is establishing across Cornwall. There is a way to go: see this post for a sense of the task. However, the direction is positive.

Notes and previous posts

Minute particulars: William BLAKE (1757-1827) Jerusalem:
“Labour well the Minute Particulars…
He who would do good to another must do it in Minute Particulars.”
