      The Case for a Real Living Wage

Sonya Baksi worked for over 40 years in the NHS and was a consultant community paediatrician. She served on national committees and was seconded to the Department of Health when guidance was being drawn up for the Children Act of 1989. She is a Fellow of the Royal College of Paediatrics and Child Health and Fellow of the Faculty of Public Health. She has long been concerned about the effects of poverty on family life. A National Minimum Wage was introduced in 1998 and a National Living Wage in 2016. In her introduction Sonya will discuss the background to this legislation and the work of the Living Wage Foundation.
