Living wage campaigns, led by community organisations and trade unions, aim to raise wages and working conditions of some of the most vulnerable workers. Are they ultimately successful in doing this? Drawing on the first major impact study of UK living wage campaigns, recent research into employment practices in the cleaning sector and primary research with cleaners at the University of East London, we assess the legacy of living wage campaigns and what this entails for the organisations leading them.
