National Living Wage confirmed to rise next year

World News

The National Living Wage will increase by £1.02 an hour from April, the Treasury has announced.

Chancellor Jeremy Hunt said: “Next April all full-time workers on the National Living Wage will get a pay rise of over £1,800 a year. That will end low pay in this country, delivering on our manifesto promise.

“The National Living Wage has helped halve the number of people on low pay since 2010, making sure work always pays.”

The move will bring the National Living Wage up from its current rate of £10.42 an hour up to £11.44 an hour. The increase represents a rise of nearly 10 percent, the largest increase in more than a decade.
