Scottish care workers have been receiving the Living Wage of £8.45 per hour since October 2016 and will now receive the same rate for all ‘sleepover hours worked. This will make a big difference to around 40 000 workers. Most are women.
In England, after a Unison-led employment appeal tribunal, workers must be paid the National Minimum Wage of £7.50 per hour instead of the fixed rate of only £29.05 or £4.60 per hour for a whole night caring for two vulnerable adults.
Just another small example, from many, that Scotland is just a wee bit different?
