Wicklow Pub To Pay Full Time Staff Living Wage From Next Year

An Irish pub group, which has an outlet in County Wicklow, has  announced that it will be paying  staff a living wage.

It's claimed the move is a first for the hospitality sector in Ireland.

The Brass Fox, which has outlets in Wicklow town and Tallaght, will be offering a minimum of €12.90 an hour to its full-time employees from 2022.

Currently Ireland's living wage is set at €12.30 per hour but the Living Wage Group has recommended raising that figure to €12.90, due to high rent costs.
