Changes to the National Minimum Wage

The National Minimum Wage is the minimum pay per hour almost all workers are entitled to. The National Living Wage is higher than the National Minimum Wage – workers get it if they’re over 25.

It doesn’t matter how small an employer is, they still have to pay the correct minimum wage.
