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.
