THE minimum wage set by the government, known as the national living wage, is increasing by more than a pound for the first time, providing a welcome boost for 2.7 million low-paid workers reports the BBC.

The main wage rate is rising from £10.42 to £11.44 an hour and will apply to workers over 21 rather than over 23.

Younger workers will also see a rise in the rates that apply to them.

Why is not when 18? Old enough to drink, vote, get married but not to earn more than £8.60 per hour. This country is awful and value young adults poorly. May as well send em back up the chimney!

The apprentice scheme is something else entirely.

If your a person under 21 but doing the same job as somebody over 21 you should get the same money the right rate for the job age should not come in to it

It should be noted that the Tory Government has listened to the recommendations from the Low Pay Commission (LPC) which is a quango that includes two representatives of the Trades Union Congress (TUC). If you look at the LPC 2023 report which provided evidence for the April 2024 wage increases, you will see reference to the TUC on 22 occasions.
