Chelsea Becomes First Premier League Club To Pay Living Wage

Chelsea FC has become the first club in England, that will start paying their workers a decent wage.

The London team, which is bankrolled by Russian billionaire Roman Abramovich, will now pay all staff N2,587.80 ( £9.15) -an-hour living wage rate in London.

This move comes in accordance with the Labour MPs’ campaign, to get football clubs to become accredited ‘living wage’ employers.

“The accreditation of Chelsea as a Living Wage employer marks a significant milestone in the campaign,” Living Wage Foundation Director, Rhys Moore said.

“We are delighted that more than 1,000 organisations are now accredited Living Wage employers, and we see Chelsea’s leadership on this issue as a mark of a responsible business.”

Outside London, the living wage is currently N2,220.13 ( £7.85) an hour and N2,587.80 (£9.15) an hour in the capital.
