£7.50 Proposed for Min Wage

Sat, 11 Mar 2017

Tynwald is to consider increasing the minimum wage in the Isle of Man.

The changes would see the introduction of a new minimum wage band for employees aged 25 and over - a move in line with changes in the UK.

If the Minimum Wage Committee's recommendations are approved by ministers, those workers would get an hourly rise of 50p, to £7.50 per hour.

Under the proposals workers in all four previous age bands would see an increase of at least 20p an hour.

If Tynwald approves the proposals they could be introduced from 1 June.
