Paying the Lincoln Living Wage has many advantages for the economy, for business, for the individual and for society and is calculated according to the basic cost of Living in the UK. Employers choose to pay the Living Wage on a voluntary basis.

Paul Banton from R W Ruddock & Sons stated “We have always paid a reasonable wage and believe our employees should be rewarded according to their skills, loyalty etc”.
