To ask the Scottish Government what information it has regarding how many care workers receive at least the living wage.
Answered by: Shona Robison 4 November 2016
We do not hold information on individuals employment terms and conditions. However, our commitment will enable all care workers supporting vulnerable adults to be paid at least the Living Wage.
In this year alone we estimate that up to 40,000 workers, mainly women, will benefit from a well deserved pay rise directly because of this policy.
