Football & The Real Living Wage

Recommended Posts

The Premier League is a multi-billion pound industry yet 8 of the 20 clubs have not confirmed that they pay the real living wage to all their staff.


Outside of the Premier League, Luton Town of the Championship and League Two Grimsby Town are the only two Living Wage Foundation-accredited clubs in the English Football League

This is important. There is a cost of living crisis and many people and families are struggling. The least football clubs can do is pay their staff, either permanent or temporary, a real living wage

I'd like to see Rovers on the list of clubs that have the decency to pay their staff a real living wage. The multi-millionaire managers who run Rovers have the power to do so if they wished.

I spoke to an employee recently who has had two pay rises in the time since the errant ones rocked up. Their pension contribution is the absolute minimum (3% I believe) that Rovers have to compy with. One of the indicators of a poor employer are high turnovers of staff numbers. She told me that Rovers can't keep hold of good employees for any length of time.
