Commenting on the new national minimum wage rates which come into force today (Sunday), TUC General Secretary Frances O’Grady said:

“It’s good that the minimum wage is rising above inflation, but it needs a serious boost in the coming years.

“We need to get it to £10 an hour as soon as possible. At the moment its not even on track to reach £9 an hour by 2020 – the amount promised by George Osborne.

“In-work poverty remains a huge problem in Britain. Today’s rises shouldn't cloud that fact."
