Almost 1,500 of Rotherham Council’s lowest paid employees are set to benefit from a pay rise thanks to the introduction of a local living wage.

From October this will mean a rise for those on the lowest pay - boosting the hourly rate up to £7.65 per hour, which is £1.34 more than the National Minimum Wage rate for workers aged 21 years and over.

Council leader Roger Stone said: “We have been committed to supporting those on low pay to provide some financial relief in what is a very difficult climate, and we are delighted to make this announcement. Almost all of the employees who will benefit from a local living wage are also residents of Rotherham, and so the move will also boost spending power in the local economy.”
