NLW rates increase with effect 1st April 2019

The Chancellor, Philip Hammond, has announced the new increased rates of National Living Wage (NLW) and National Minimum Wage (NMW). The increases will affect 2.4 million workers. These new rates will be effective from 1 April 2019.

From April 2019, minimum pay rates will increase as below.

NLW (workers aged 25+) — from £7.83 to £8.21 per hour.

NMW rates:

workers aged 21–24 — from £7.38 to £7.70 per hour

workers aged 18–20 — from £5.90 to £6.15 per hour

workers aged 16–18 — from £4.20 to £4.35 per hour

apprentice rate — from £3.70 to £3.90 per hour.

A full-time worker aged 25 and over on the NLW will therefore receive an annual pay increase of £690.

At MAS all our workers enjoy the 25+ NLW rate as a minumum pay rate, not matter what age or gender.
