Trust for London report: Over a third of Londoners earn less than needed to live on in London

Over a third of Londoners (34%) earn less than is needed to live on in London according to a new report from the Trust for London. The report found that costs from housing, public transport and childcare were pushing more people into poverty. The report shows the Mayor of London needs to recognise the strain the rocketing cost of living has placed on Londoners.

The Trust for London report is based on research gathered from members of the public in London on what they see as a ‘minimum income standard’ that can fulfil a ‘minimum socially acceptable standard of living’ which includes essential needs and participation in society.
