National minimum wage
From 1 April 2021 thousands of low-paid workers will receive a pay rise of almost 9%, as the eligibility for the national living wage is widened to include 23 and 24-year-olds.
The age from which workers become eligible for the national living wage will reduce to 23, the government has confirmed as it announced April 2021 increases to statutory minimum wage rates.
The Government should improve communications around how apprentices should be paid, after it emerged that as many as one in three in some age groups are underpaid - often because of confusion around which rate they should be on.
