I commented on Emma's blog on this but since listening to you both I've done some more research and reading.

This is a good resource: http://www.geog.qmul.ac.uk/livingwage/

Of course there is the Living Wage Foundation: http://www.livingwage.org.uk/calculation

And how the London rate is calculate: http://www.london.gov.uk/sites/default/files/living-wage-2013.pdf

But I'm still not convinced that the wage level is the problem and still agree with Tim Worstall at the ASI that this should be Tax Poverty Week: http://www.adamsmith.org/blog/economics/woo-time-on-tax-poverty, http://www.adamsmith.org/blog/economics/woo-time-on-tax-poverty

Its tax poverty that is the problem, not the amount being paid.
