National Minimum Wage
The National Minimum Wage (NMW) is the minimum pay per hour most workers are entitled to by law. The rate will depend on a worker's age and if they are an apprentice.
NB - the National Living Wage was introduced on 1 April 2016 for all working people aged 25 and over. The current National Minimum Wage for those under the age of 25 still applies.
