    Many firms like the idea of living wages because it not only benefits workers, but business benefit as well. For workers, living wages increases their income which means that productivity will be raised. For businesses, living wages helps lower sick leaves or the days that employees call off like having a day off so they can gain back from the absent of workers. They also encourage workers to work harder too. Some people think that living wages increases unemployment, but many living wage campaigners disagrees with that because increasing wages can help out lower income families.
