National Minimum Wage to increase on 1 April 2019

with No Comments

Both the National Minimum and National Living Wage increased on 1 April 2019.

The hourly rate for the minimum wage depends on the employee’s age and whether they are an apprentice. As the minimum wage increases more employers than ever will be directly affected, including some of those who currently pay above the minimum.

The new rates from 1 April 2019 are:

25 and over £8.21
21 to 24 £7.70
18 to 20 £6.15
Under 18 £4.35
Apprentice £3.90
