2100 Workers in Ceredigion set to benefit from record minimum wage increase

2,100 workers in Ceredigion will see a boost to their pay packet from October this year, thanks to an increase in the National Minimum Wage.

Thanks to the influence of the Liberal Democrats in Government, the National Minimum Wage is set to rise by three per cent, which means workers will get a new rate of £6.70 an hour.  The National Minimum Wage for apprentices will increase by 57p an hour to £3.30.

This is the largest real-terms increase in the National Minimum Wage since 2008, and over 1.4 million UK workers are set to benefit, and 73,000 workers in Wales.

 

Commenting Mark Williams said:

“Thousands of people in Ceredigion have already felt the benefit of Lib Dem income tax cuts and the increase in National Minimum Wage is another step in the right direction.”

“If you are on low pay, or starting your career through an apprenticeship, you will get more support to help with the cost of living."
