Minimum wage levels

In its submission to the LPC , Low Pay Commission, the TUC argues that:
A 21p, 3.5% (bringing it to £6.14 an hour) increase would benefit nearly one million workers and help address the gender pay gap, as two in three of those benefitting would be women. Female workers, employees from ethnic minority backgrounds, those with disabilities, and younger and older workers are among the groups who will benefit the most.
GDP growth has now returned and, despite the cuts in government spending, is forecast to continue throughout 2011 and 2012, which is the period that the LPC is considering.
