Churches should show the way on Living Wage

Body: 

Supporting a Church Action on Poverty (CAP) campaign to get Catholic and Anglican bishops to pledge to pay all in their instititutions a Living Wage, Simon Barrow, co-director of the Christian think-tank Ekklesia, said:

"Christian principles demand that wages should be just. Church Action on Poverty's important initiative invites all in our community, not least leaders in the majority Anglican and Catholic traditions, to get behind the campaign in an engaged way, not just with words of encouragement to others. Politicians and the government need to understand that a Living Wage is not an optional extra - without it, saying 'we're all in this together' in an economic crisis is meaningless."
