National Living Wage for Young Workers

The Government’s National Living Wage of £7.83 per hour is only currently paid to workers aged 25 and over. Workers aged 21 to 24 are only entitled to a minimum wage of £7.38 per hour (45p per hour less) and workers aged 18 to 20 are only entitled to a minimum wage of £5.90 per hour (£1.93 less).

On 6 July, a Private Member’s Bill from Holly Lynch MP is on the House of Commons agenda, which is calling for the National Living Wage to be extended to workers from the age of 18. 

We want to show MPs how important this issue is to young workers and get them to support the Bill. 

Contact your MP to ask them to show that they support fair pay for young workers.
