Lidl supermarket to pay staff recommended living wage

Lidl is to become the first UK supermarket to implement the minimum wage as recommended by the Living Wage Foundation, the company has announced.

From October, Lidl UK employees will earn a minimum of £8.20 an hour across England, Scotland and Wales, and £9.35 an hour in London, the supermarket said.

However, the pay rise will not apply in Northern Ireland.
