National Living Wage increased

An increase in the National Living Wage will come into effect tomorrow, 1 April, providing millions of workers with a pay rise of at least 9.7 per cent and helping to tackle the cost of living. 

  • Despite turbulent global economic conditions, Britain' labour market has remained strong and unemployment low – so it is right that to support workers, especially those on low incomes, where this is possible. 
  • That is why the government has announced that a National Living Wage increase will come into effect from 1 April, rising 9.7 per cent for those aged 23 and over, 10.9 per cent for 21 and 22 year olds, and 9.7 per cent for younger workers and apprentices.
  • This change is the largest ever cash increase in the National Living Wage – boosting the pay for millions of workers.
