Why is this important?
Sainsbury's is the UK's third largest supermarket chain - but they don't pay their staff the living wage. This is the minimum hourly rate that experts say people need to survive without payday loans or working two jobs. Behind their family-friendly image, thousands of their staff are struggling to get by.
Some of us have probably shopped at Sainsbury's, or know someone who has and as customers we have a lot of power and influence. Sainsbury’s care about their good reputation if we pile on enough pressure, they’ll worry about losing it. Together, we can show them they need to value everyone they employ, not just the big bosses who get the fat bonuses. And as a profit making company, they can afford it!
