Abstract: This report by the Employment Research Institute, Napier University, Edinburgh, for the Poverty Alliance has two objectives: first, to set out a methodology for identifying a Scottish Living Wage. Second, to use that methodology to suggest the rate at which a Scottish Living Wage ought to be set for 2008. A Living Wage is a minimum income that enables workers and their families to maintain an acceptable standard of basic material needs without living in poverty. Unlike the minimum wage it is calculated on the basis of family expenditure.
