Beyond the Bottom Line: The challenges and opportunities of a living wage

20th January 2013

Matthew Pennycook and Kayte Lawton

Beyond the Bottom Line, a joint report from the Resolution Foundation and IPPR, presents the first full economic analysis of the living wage in the UK, including: modelling its potential impact on labour demand and considering the potential costs of living wages for employers; analysing which workers and families benefit most from the living wage; and quantifying the fiscal savings to government of wider living wage coverage.

The report sets out the key lessons that emerge from this analysis and makes recommendations for how campaigners, employers and the state can work together to ensure many more workers benefit from the living wage.
