A big part of the Chamber’s role is to represent Cumbrian businesses and ensure their voice is heard.
To that end, we conducted an online survey last month to ask businesses about the impact of above-inflation increases in the Minimum Wage.
You can read about the findings here.
We will present the results to the Low Pay Commission, which advises the Government on the level of the Minimum Wage, when they make a fact-finding visit to Cumbria later this month.
In the meantime, Chamber Chief Executive Rob Johnston highlighted the issues in an interview with Gabrielle Rowley of That’s Cumbria TV.
That’s Cumbria TV began broadcasting last year. You can view their rolling daily TV news bulletins on Freeview Channel 8.
