I DON'T often find myself in ideological agreement with Boris Johnson, but on the concept of the Living Wage, we are on common ground!

Boris is an ardent supporter of London's Living Wage, which is set above the UK minimum wage to recognise the higher costs of living in the capital.

The aim of the Living Wage is to provide the minimum income necessary to meet basic needs, including housing and healthcare, on top of items such as food and heating.
