Minimum Wage in UK – Women, pensioners and part-time workers to gain most from increases

Women, pensioners and part-time workers stand to gain most from increases in the minimum wage, new research shows.

One-in-three working women will benefit from the Government’s plans to introduce a national living wage, according to new research.

Six million workers, representing about a fifth of all employees, will see their pay lifted by the end of the decade as a result of the policy, claimed the Resolution Foundation.

Women are expected to account for 3.7m of those receiving a pay rise – or nearly three-in-10 of all female employees – because they are more likely to work part-time and in low-paid sectors, the think-tank estimated.

By comparison, around 2.3m male employees, or about 18pc of the workforce, will see their earnings boosted.
