National Living Wage Increase
The government’s National Living Wage(this will open in a new window) (NLW) has risen from £7.83 to £8.21 for workers over 25.
You must be at least aged 25 to get the National Living Wage - the minimum wage will still apply for workers aged 24 and under.
These rates are for the National Living Wage and the National Minimum Wage. The rates change every April.
