Why the living wage matters: Fran Massey
(08/11/12) Fran Massey is a UNISON member, and was one of the caterers at The Manchester College who successfully campaigned for a living wage.
"It's made it easier as a family," she says.
When you get home from work you can relax - not worry about robbing Peter to pay Paul."
Ms Massey's children are both keen basketball players who, before she received the living wage, had to take it in turns to play.
"One week one would play and the other had to watch. Since we've had the pay rise, they can both play together."
