IKEA introduce living wage


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.
