United Kingdom - Retailer awards higher hourly minimum wage - November 30, 2016

Retailer Lidl will pay its Northern Ireland workers a higher voluntary minimum wage of at least £8.45 an hour. The chain, which employs around 800 staff across 38 stores here, will introduce the increase in March 2017 across the UK. The move will benefit around a fifth of its workforce who currently earn an hourly minimum of £8.25. The £8.45 is a voluntary minimum hourly wage, higher than the Government's own so-called 'living wage'.
