The minimum hourly rate that a person can be paid depends on their age and whether or not they’re classed as an apprentice. Changes to the rates occur every April, and with this just a matter of weeks away, the government has confirmed the National Minimum Wage and National Living Wage rates for 2020 to 2021.
In order to get the National Minimum Wage, a person must be at least school leaving age.
However, this age depends on where a person lives, meaning those living in England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland may have different school leaving ages.
For the National Living Wage, a person must be at least aged 25.
What are the current National Living Wage and the National Minimum Wage rates? What will they rise to in April 2020?
