UK Minimum Wage set to increase in October0
By - Posted 4th July, 2015 at 9:10 pm

The Minimum Wage for adults in the United Kingdom is set to increase by 15p to £6.08 an hour from October this year following recent recommendations by the Low Pay Commission.

The Government has approved of the recommendations made by the commission, which will ensure that every adult in the UK regardless of their job is paid just over £6 an hour. The minimum wage currently stands at £5.93 an hour meaning that there will be an overall increase of 2.5% in pay for Britain’s lowest paid workers. 

Also changing, is the hourly amounts paid to Apprentices and those under 18. Apprentices will be gaining an extra 10p (increasing their wages to £2.60 an hour) whilst 18-20 year olds will be paid an additional 6p an hour (bringing the minimum to £4.98). 16 and 17 year olds will however be receiving an extra 4p (rising the hourly minimum pay to £3.68). 

Liberal Democrat MP and Business Minister Vince Cable said ahead of the changes  “We believe we have struck the right balance between the needs of low-paid workers and the challenges faced by businesses. More than 890,000 of Britain’s lowest paid workers will fain from these changes. They are appropriate, reflecting the current economic uncertainty while at the same time protecting the UK’s lowest- paid workers
