From 1st October 2013, the rates are as set out below:
Aged 18-20 £5.03
Aged 16-17 £3.72
Also from 1st October 2013, those that fail to pay the national minimum wage will be named and shamed publically. I would be very interested to see who makes it onto this list of who not to work for. I would place a little wager (excuse the pun!) that we will see the odd household name from time to time and it won’t just be the small employers who get caught out.
