National Minimum Wage rates on 1 Ap‌r‌il 2018

February 16th, 2018  |  Published in Uncategorized

April Fool’s day increase, the HMRC press release says:

The government is increasing the National Minimum and National Living Wage rates on 1 Ap‌r‌il 2018.

This includes the largest increases in a decade for the rates that apply to 18-20 and 21-24 year olds.

As the minimum wage increases more employers than ever will be directly affected, including those who currently pay above the minimum.

Lets hope these young people spend their extra 30p wisely.

The hourly rate for the minimum wage depends on your age and whether you’re an apprentice.

You must be at least:

  • school leaving age to get the National Minimum Wage
  • aged 25 to get the National Living Wage – the minimum wage will still apply for workers aged 24 and under

Current rates

These rates are for the National Living Wage and the National Minimum Wage. The rates change every April.
