Catholic Social Teaching & the Living Wage

The Bishops' Resolution draws upon the wealth of theological support that the Church has for a 'just wage' and recognised the important role that Catholic organisations can play in serving the Common Good.

The Living Wage embodies the mission of the Church to the poor and encompasses a range of Catholic Social Teaching themes of Solidarity, Subsidiarity and the importance of Human Dignity. This invitation from the Bishops of England and Wales for Catholic organisations to consider the Living Wage is both part of the Church's mission to the poor and also a way for all Catholics to put their faith into action.

The videos below explore the Living Wage as discussed through the last 100 years of Catholic Social Teaching.
