The article explains the role of living wages in compensating incomes of British workers. The idea is supported by both British Prime Minister David Cameron and Labour Party leader Ed Milliband, wherein it was created by former mayor of London, England Ken Livingstone as means of measuring the standard of living in the city. Livings wages have been imposed to workers by organisations including Barclays Bank and Greater London Authority, wherein both of them experienced high worker retention and less labor absences.
