Nearly 750,000 jobs in London are low paid, study finds

Nearly three quarters of a million of the capital’s jobs are officially low pay, a study by a think tank has found.

The figure, just below one in five, has fallen compared to previous year.

But the New Policy Institute found that there is a geographical divide, with the highest proportion of sub-London Living Wage jobs found in Outer London boroughs like Enfield, Waltham Forest and Harrow.

A fifth of these jobs are in hotels and restaurants.

“No further increase in the proportion of low-paid jobs in London is welcome,” said Adam Tinson, senior researcher at the NPI.

“However, low pay rates are still higher than a decade ago, and particular employment sectors have a very poor record that must be addressed.”
