UK ‘national living wage’ to rise to £9.50 an hour from next April

The Guardian says The UK’s “national living wage” is go up to £9.50 an hour from next April, meaning a pay rise for millions of low-paid workers.

Ministers have accepted the Low Pay Commission’s recommendation for a 6.6% increase from £8.91, which applies to workers aged 23 and over. For those aged 21 to 22, the minimum will increase from £8.36 to £9.18.

The government says the rise represents an increase of about £1,000 a year for a full-time worker, arguing this goes some way towards compensating the low-paid who are losing out from the £1,000 a year cut in universal credit, and the effect of inflation on household budgets.
