Originally Posted By: BBC News
The national minimum wage for adults will increase by 15 pence from October 2011 to 6.08 an hour, the government has said. The 2.5% increase was recommended by the independent Low Pay Commission (LPC).

The rate for apprentices will rise by 10p, for 16-17 year-olds by 4p and for 18-20 year-olds by 6p. Business Secretary Vince Cable said the changes would help more than 890,000 of Britain's lowest-paid workers.

The LPC was unanimous in its recommendations "despite all the economic uncertainties" according to its chairman, David Norgrove. The complete set of changes are:

Over-20s: up 15p (2.5%) to 6.08
18-20 year-olds: up 6p (1.2%) to 4.98
16-17 year-olds: up 4p (1.1%) to 3.68
Apprentices: up 10p to (4%) 2.60.

I would have guessed there are more than 890,000 on minimum wage. Checking the minimum wage commission's figures there are 1,077,000 jobs on minimum wage. Many are part time so presumably there are around 187,000 people who have two minimum wage jobs.

The figure still seems low from my experience.

To be fair, the report (and Vince Cable) does state that it will benefit more than 890,000 people.

Its not in their interests to under-quote this figure by much.

I was just surprised, if I had to guess how many were on minimum wage I'd have guessed around the 3 million mark. I suppose that it is a bit geographical and there may be a higher density around this area.

There could be a lot of folk, who say they are getting paid NMW cos its simpler, and actually being paid say 6.00 or even 6.20 an hour or summit, so arnt on the official figures (as their not on the NMW lol)?? Unless the figures include some sort of buffer?

I dunno lol. Id rather they underquote than overquote though!
