“Was not their mistake once more bred of the life of slavery that they had been living?—a life which was always looking upon everything, except mankind, animate and inanimate—‘nature,’ as people used to call it—as one thing, and mankind as another, it was natural to people thinking in this way, that they should try to make ‘nature’ their slave, since they thought ‘nature’ was something outside them” — William Morris

Staying Alive: The New British National "Living" Wage

Who did Osborne hire to calculate it? Agamben?

Should be called the Bare Living Wage, no?

"The Living Wage: Because Living, No Matter What the Quality, Is the Name of the Game."

The phrase has been nicked from a movement that started in the USA to pay people more than just a minimum wage. Nicked and redefined. Like Cameron's use of "progressive" in 2010 (does anyone remember that?).
