Living Hours Campaign

Living Hours, launched by the Living Wage Foundation in June, is a new standard to tackle insecure work,

It aims to build on the huge success of Citizens UK’s work on low wages by tackling the problem many workers face with a lack of guaranteed hours and short notice given for shift cancellations. You can read the blog from Gayle, a leader with Newcastle Citizens Advice and Tyne and Wear Citizens about their involvement in the work.
