Swedish furniture giant Ikea announced this month that it will introduce the living wage for all its Irish staff.

Here in Ireland the living wage currently stands at €11.50 per hour, which is almost €3 more than the minimum wage of €8.65. Ikea UK and Ireland HR manager Pernille Hagild told the Journal.ie that as a “values-driven organisation” the chain believed in “providing a meaningful wage to our co-workers that supports the cost of living no matter where they live”.

Ikea currently only has one Irish store, in Ballymun in North County Dublin.
