Minimum wage query for Economic Development Minister

The lower minimum wage for under 25s will be discussed in this month's sitting of Tynwald.

From the start of June the minimum wage will increase to £7.50 for those over 25 year old, but those aged 21 to 24 will receive just £7.20.

Douglas North MHK David Ashford will ask the Minister for Economic Development why younger workers will receive a lower minimum wage.

The minimum wage is currently £7 for all workers over 21 years old.

Laurence Skelly will provide the details when Tynwald sits next week.
