As one of “Thatcher’s children” I am always viscerally suspicious of socialism however it is clear to me that in future society is going to need dramatically more redistribution of income not less. Here is an organisation in the best traditions of Cadbury and Rowntree that we should all support. It could be and should be the next “Fairtrade”.

The Living Wage Foundation supports, recognises and celebrates the leadership shown by Living Wage Employers in the UK. We believe that work should be the surest way out of poverty.
