The new national minimum wage of £10.42 per hour is still not enough!

The national minimum wage has gone up to £10.42 per hour since April 1 2023, but it’s still not enough!

£10.42 is the absolute minimum your employer should be paying you from now on if you are 23 years of age or older. Other rates apply if you are younger (Find out more here). Check your payslips to make sure the pay has increased accordingly.

However, £10.42 is still very low given the high rates of inflation – currently at 13.4% – with food alone being around 20 per cent more expensive this year.

You don’t have to accept low wages. So, if you are not already earning the London Living Wage of £11.95p/h, we want to encourage you and support you to demand more. The LLW is a recommendation and not compulsory for employers but many subscribe to it.

If you want to fight for more, fight for what you deserve, get in touch with us here>> organising@uvwunion.org.uk
