New National Living Wage to give living standards boost to over a million workers
From 1 April 2016, workers in the UK aged over 25 earning the minimum rate of £6.70 per hour will see a 50p increase. The National Living Wage supports the government’s vision of a higher wage, lower welfare, lower tax society. More than 70% of workers have said they will feel more positive for themselves and their families as a result of the introduction of the new National Living Wage, announced by the Chancellor at the Summer Budget. The findings are part of a new government survey which also shows that 59% of respondents will feel more motivated at work as a result of the increase in their pay packets.https://www.gov.uk/government/news/new-national-living-wage-to-give-living-standards-boost-to-over-a-million-workers
