30 September 2011 - BIS
From Saturday 1 October 2011
the National Minimum Wage (NMW) will rise in accordance with the
recommendations set out by the Low Pay Commission last April.
From October 2011:
- The adult rate will
increase by 15p to £6.08 an hour;
- The rate for 18-20 year
olds will increase by 6p to £4.98 an hour;
- The rate for 16-17 year
olds will increase by 4p to £3.68 an hour; and
- The rate for apprentices
will increase by 10p to £2.60 an hour.
The Government is committed to the NMW because of the
protection it provides to low paid workers and the incentives it
provides to work. More than 890,000 of Britainís lowest-paid workers
will gain from these changes.
