Millions of workers in all parts of the UK will receive a pay increase from 1st April as the National Living Wage and National Minimum Wage uplift comes into effect.
The rate rises include a 2.2% increase in the National Living Wage to £8.91, the equivalent of more than £345 extra per year for someone working full-time.
And for the first time since it came into effect in 2016 more younger people will be eligible for the National Living Wage, as the age threshold will be lowered from 25 to 23 years old.
