The impact of the National Minimum Wage on UK businesses
Summary & aims
We analysed business datasets to assess: How has the distribution of average labour costs across businesses developed since the introduction of the NMW? How has the NMW affected the behaviour of smaller and larger firms and firms in the low paying sectors? In particular, how have these impacts changed since 2008 and with recent NMW upratings?
This study was funded by the Low Pay Commission. It updated and extended an earlier study for the Low Pay Commission published here
