Living Wage

KAT Communications commitment to real living wage

KAT Communications has renewed its accreditation as a Living Wage Employer.

Their Living Wage commitment will see everyone working directly and indirectly receive a minimum hourly wage of £12, significantly higher than the government minimum for over 21s, which currently stands at £11.44 per hour.

KAT Communications are based in Yorkshire and the Humber, the UK region with the highest proportion of non-Living Wage jobs in the country (14.4%), with over 314,000 jobs paying less than the real Living Wage. Despite this, KAT Communications has continued to commit to pay the real Living Wage and deliver a fair day’s pay for a hard day’s work.

The real Living Wage is the only rate calculated according to the costs of living. It provides a voluntary benchmark for employers that wish to ensure their staff earn a wage they can live on, not just the government minimum.

Since 2011 the Living Wage movement has delivered a pay rise to over 460,000 people and put £3 billion extra into the pockets of low paid workers.

Anthony Temperton of KAT Communications said “We have always done what we can to support our own staff, and our third party contractors, in what has been a difficult few years with the pandemic and the cost of living crisis. We are delighted to renew our accreditation with the Living Wage Foundation and continue to be one of only 93 telecom companies in the UK who have this accreditation.”
