The National Minimum Wage rates change from 1 October as follows...

  • The adult rate for workers aged 21 and over will increase by 19p from £6.31 to £6.50 per hour.
  • The hourly rate for workers aged 18-20 will increase by 10p from £5.03 to £5.13.
  • The rate for workers aged 16-17 will increase by 7p from £3.72 to £3.79 per hour.
  • The hourly rate for apprentices will increase by 5p from £2.68 to £2.73.

In spite of these increases, the minimum wage remains a long way from Labour’s proposals, aired this week, of a raise in the minimum wage to £8 per hour.

It has been suggested that such an increase would add approximately £3,000 to an annual salary – without factoring in additional pension and National Insurance contributions that would need to be made by the employer.
