Abstract

This is an archival version, for scholarly purposes, of the report of the same name that the authors produced for the GLA in 2007. At the time of this deposition, this can be found at http://legacy.london.gov.uk/mayor/economic_unit/docs/a_fairer_london_2007apr.pdf. It should be cited as Freeman, A. and Veruete-McKay, L. 2007. A Fairer Wage: the Living Wage in London (2007). London: Greater London Authority Living Wage Unit. All disclaimers in that version apply. I have not always been able to provide up-to-date links to the cited texts or data sources. In those cases where this is not possible, and where the link is broken, I have generally removed it as superfluous, retaining as much information in the title of the publication as is possible, in the hope that this will be enough for future researchers to track down the sources where required. This was the third of a series of annual reports on the Living Wage in London, each of which updates the level of the Living Wage using the methodology set out in 2005 (See Freeman and Veruete-McKay 2005a) and provides additional data on its impact and implementation. The Living Wage reports are supplemented by additional information on employment and poverty in London which can be found at the GLA Economics website, at the time of deposition being http://www.london.gov.uk/priorities/business-economy/publications/gla-economics
