Labour Rate

The Labour Rate was a system of poor relief (outdoor relief), used in England from 1832 to 1834,[1] where workers were paid at a given rate. If this was not met then the rest had to be made up by the parish's poor relief.[2] It was authorised by the Agricultural Labourers Act 1832, and adopted in about 1 in 5 parishes until it was replaced by the Poor Law Amendment Act 1834.
