Welcoming the Increase in the National Minimum Wage

Wednesday, March 2, 2005

Meg Munn MP for Sheffield Heeley has welcomed the increase in the National Minimum Wage.


Meg said of the increase:


‘Since its introduction six years ago the minimum wage has increased year on year ensuring that up to 140,000 of Yorkshires lowest paid workers are seeing real differences in their finances. The increase is excellent news because above all according to last years figures up to 70% of those helped by the minimum wage are women.”


Britain has one the highest rates of female employment in the world up nearly 3% since 1997. The minimum wage has also helped bridge the gap at the lower end of the labour market and helped more and more people out of poverty” 


The National Minimum Wage is to increase to £5.05 in October of this year for 21 year olds and over and that will further increase next year to £5.35.
