National Living Wage set to increase by 6.2% in April

Lower-paid workers will receive a 6.2% pay rise with a new National Living Wage of £8.72 per hour, effective from 1 April 2020.

Nearly 3 million workers are set to benefit from the increases to the National Living Wage (NLW) and National Minimum Wage (NMW) rates for younger workers, according to estimates from the independent Low Pay Commission. The rise means Government is on track to meet its current target for the NLW to reach 60% of median earnings by 2020.
