'Paying living wage is universities' civic mission'

Universities should pay the living wage as part of a "civic mission", Education Secretary Kirsty Williams has said.

Cardiff University is the only one of Wales' eight universities with the status of a living wage employer.

Accredited firms and organisations pay a higher minimum wage than the statutory level - at least £8.45 an hour.

The body that represents higher education, Universities Wales, said many institutions "do have pay rates that match the voluntary living wage".
