From Thursday 1 October 2015, the adult rate of the National Minimum Wage (NMW) will rise by 20 pence from £6.50 to £6.70 per hour.

This is the largest real-terms increase in the National Minimum Wage since 2007, and more than 1.4 million of Britain’s lowest-paid workers are set to benefit.

For your information:

  • the adult rate will increase by 20 pence to £6.70 per hour

Because we think you are all worth it, from the 1st October 2015, if you work for Arena Personnel Ltd you will never be paid less than £6.70 per hour whatever your age.
