Where The National Living Wage Will Put Employers Under Pressure

Recommended Posts


Higher minimum pay laws will be especially tough for employers in Sheffield, Nottingham and Birmingham, the Resolution Foundation has warned.

Implementing the national living wage – which requires employees aged 25 and over to be paid at least £7.20 an hour – will be a particular strain for employers in these lower-paying regions, the think tank revealed in a report.

The “ambitious” policy is expected to present challenges for employers in places where low-paid staff are concentrated. In London the total wage bill is expected to rise by 0.3pc as a result of the national living wage, but in areas like Birmingham the increase will be 0.8pc.

Not only can you not have a national minimum wage you can't have a single interest rate either.

I wonder if this law will suppress business activity further in these regions?
