Chancellor Philip Hammond confirmed in the 2018 Spring Statement that the rates of the National Living Wage and National Minimum Wage would rise from 1 April 2018, as previously announced in the autumn Budget.
The hourly rates will increase in April 2018:
The rise in the national living wage for workers over 25 is almost 5 per cent; however, the target of it hitting £9.30 by 2020 has slipped and it won’t get to £9.10 until 2022.
Workers aged under 25 will see the largest increase in a decade in their statutory minimum wage in April 2018, according to the Low Pay Commission.
See our Spring Statement for other announcements made on 13 March 2018
