Difference Between National Living Wage and the real Living Wage

In 2015 the UK Government introduced the National Living Wage (NLW) for over-25s based on a target to reach 60% of median earnings by 2020 (wage based), whereas the real Living Wage is based on the cost of living (needs based).

The Living Wage is recalculated annually based on what employees and their families need to live.
