The impact of low wage employment
The impact of low wage employment on workers’ health, nutrition and living standards: a case for the London Living Wage
Jessica Mitchell et al. 2008
This study is based on interviews conducted with 139 individuals, some paid at the national minimum wage and others at the higher Living Wage. The report makes the case that those paid at the Living Wage rate have better access to fruit and vegetables, and are also less likely to report chronic health problems.
