MB Firestop receives Jersey Living Wage Accreditation

Monday 19 December 2022

A local fire protection company is the latest business to commit to playing its employees a Living Wage.

MB Firestop has agreed to pay staff at least £11.27 per hour - a figure taking into account the cost of living, taxes, and the value of benefits available to working people on low incomes.

The Living Wage Campaign is run by Caritas Jersey, a local charity, who are licensed by the Living Wage Foundation in the UK to manage and co-ordinate the promotion of a living wage in Jersey.

MB Firestop General Manager, Bob Le Cornu said: “We at MB Firestop Limited are delighted to have received the Jersey Living Wage Accreditation. We believe that all workers deserve a living wage and with fair pay; it brings benefits for our families, our communities, and our business.” 

The CEO of Caritas, Patrick Lynch, said: “We are delighted to be able to accredit MB Firestop Ltd as a Living Wage Employer.  They join a growing list of organisations from a wide range of different sectors who see the benefits of a Living Wage to our island society and want to ensure their employees, thrive not just survive, in these difficult economic times."
