Aintree Plastics increases Real Living Wage rates for all staff

Aintree Plastics is pleased to announce that we have increased the real Living Wage rates for all our staff for 2023/24.

We have been proud to be an accredited Living Wage Employer since 2022, and we are one of over 14,000 organisations who are committed to paying the real Living Wage to their staff.

As living costs continue to rise, the real Living Wage has never been more important. It remains the only UK wage rate to be calculated based on the cost of living, and the new rate of £12 reflects the continued price rises faced by UK households.

The real Living Wage is the only wage rate independently calculated to reflect rising living costs, and it applies to everybody over the age of 18. A full-time worker earning the new, real Living Wage would earn over £3,000 per year more than a worker earning the current government minimum, and over £2,000 more than their current pay.

We have amazing staff at Aintree Plastics, and every single person has played their part in contributing to the success of the business since it was established over 28 years ago. We are proud to be able to support our staff by making sure that everyone earns at least the real Living Wage.

What is the real Living Wage?

The real Living Wage is the only UK wage rate that is voluntarily paid by over 14,000 UK businesses who believe their staff deserve a wage which meets everyday needs - like the weekly shop, or a surprise trip to the dentist.

Over 460,000 employees have received a pay rise as a result of the Living Wage campaign and Aintree Plastics are proud to become a Living Wage accredited employer.

We join over a thousand business in the North West of England that pay the real living wage, and sit alongside big household names including Everton FC, Liverpool FC, Aviva, Ikea, Nationwide, and Oxfam.

Who are the Living Wage Foundation?

The Living Wage Foundation is the organisation at the heart of the independent movement of businesses and people that campaign for the idea that a hard day’s work deserves a fair day’s pay. They celebrate and recognise the leadership of responsible employers who choose to go further and pay a real Living Wage based on the cost of living, not just the government minimum.
