Council looks at 'living wage'.
Council leader Harry Andrews has requested that a report be written up on how to pay 3,000 workers a living wage of pounds 7.20 per hour.
Amongst the employees who would benefit are cleaners and domestic assistants, lunch-time supervisors and kitchen assistants. It comes after the Labour-run Cardiff council announced it would give its lowest paid staff a wage rise.
Coun Andrews said: "At a time when the Tory Liberal coalition Government is implementing policies that will cause hardship for many ordinary families, we in Welsh Labour are looking for ways in which we can help.
"The Living Wage at pounds 7.20 an hour will help over 3000 of the council's employees currently on the lowest pay scales."
