Agricultural minimum wage
A rise in the minimum wage rate for agricultural workers has been proposed by the Scottish Agricultural Wages Board (SAWB). If approved, the minimum rate of pay for agricultural workers with more than 26 weeks continuous employment will increase by 10p per hour to £7.24 from October 1, 2015 - bringing the minimum wage for a 39 hour week to £282.36. Views are being sought on the proposed increase – which is in line with increases to the National Minimum Wage - by June 30, 2014. It comes as the Scottish Government formally consults on the future of the SAWB.http://news.scotland.gov.uk/News/Agricultural-minimum-wage-197c.aspx
