Benefits and Sanctions

With the raise in wages, Hunt will also emphasize the requirement for stringent sanctions for people on benefits who aren’t looking for employment opportunities. This initiative was brought out at a time when the government is facing great pressure from certain Tory factions advocating for tax cuts.

The Bigger Picture

At the moment, the minimum wage for workers aged 23 and above is £10.42 an hour. It will go under annual revisions by the government’s consultations with the independent Low Pay Commission. These steps showcase the commitment to the government’s goal to enhance the national living wage to two-thirds of the median hourly pay by next October.
