A Review of the Youth Rates of the National Minimum Wage
A report by the Low Pay Commission (LPC) concluding a two year review of the National Living Wage rates for under 25 sets out recommendations for a phased extension of the National Living Wage to workers aged 21-25. Additional independent reports, commissioned by LPC and used to understand the impact of rates on employers and young people, are published alongside the review: "Assessing Factors that Affect the Labour Market Decisions of Young People aged 16 to 24: Research Informing LPC Review of Youth Rates" by the Centre for Employment Research at the University of Westminster; and "Understanding employers' use of the National Minimum Wage youth rates" by the National Institute of Economic and Social Research.Link to Review
