GLC supports Scottish Youth Parliament's One Fair Wage campaign

GLC's Mike Dailly signing the
One Fair Pledge with
John Gillies, MSYP.
The 'One Fair Wage' campaign has been set up by the Scottish Youth Parliament (SYP) to encourage individuals and organisations to pledge their support for a Scottish Living Wage.  SYP believes everyone in Scotland deserves to earn at least enough to live on.

The SYP believe it's obscene for people to be working whilst still trapped in poverty and that all workers - regardless of how old they are - should earn a Scottish Living wage. Govan Law Centre agrees, and applaudes the SYP for launching such a fantastic campaign.

A Scottish Living Wage can make a real difference to half a million low-paid Scots. Over the next year the Scottish Youth Parliament will call on politicians, businesses, councils and charities to pledge their support for a Scottish Living Wage.  GLC hopes you will pledge your support too. It's time for One Fair Wage.
