Parking wardens working on behalf of Birmingham City Council are the latest to have their pay increased to ensure they receive a fair day’s pay for a fair day’s work.

A group of 55 parking wardens had their pay elevated by 20 per cent from £6.50 per hour to the national Living Wage – currently £7.85 per hour – on February 1 after the council awarded its latest contract for parking enforcement services to NSL.

Cllr Stewart Stacey, Cabinet Member for Commissioning, Contracting and Improvement, said: “The Living Wage should be paid to everyone in employment to ensure they and their families can achieve an acceptable standard of life.
