Burberry, which has been a UK real Living Wage employer since 2015, has implemented the increased rates from the 1st of October 2022, ahead of the deadline set by the Living Wage Foundation, respectively, 14th of May 2023.

Burberry is a long-time supporter and champion of the real Living Wage movement and today's announcement will make a massive difference", stated Katherine Chapman, Director of the Living Wage Foundation.
