Rabbi Danny Rich responds to the budget announcement of a new minimum wage

"While welcoming the announcement in the budget of an increase in the minimum wage for those aged 25 and over, it falls well short of the national Living Wage which Liberal Judaism guarantees for its own staff and which is necessary to enable people to live with dignity and self-respect.

“Liberal Judaism has been in the forefront of the campaign for a Living Wage and will continue to press for it to become a reality in line with our religious responsibilities."
