'Real living wage' rises in pre-Christmas pay bump

Thousands of UK workers will enjoy a pre-Christmas pay bump if their employer is a member of the "real living wage" campaign.
Businesses who have signed up to the voluntary scheme will lift their UK hourly rate by 30p to £9.30.
People living in London will see their hourly pay rise by 20p to £10.75.
The scheme is separate to the statutory National Living Wage for workers aged 25 and above which currently stands at £8.21 an hour.
The Living Wage Foundation said its "real" pay rate - which applies to all employees over 18 - is calculated independently and is based on costs such as food, clothing and household bills.
