Two million workers are set to see their pay increase in April as the National Living Wage jumps to £8.21 an hour. This is the hourly rate for those aged 25 or over who are working in Britain. The minimum wage for those aged 16-24 also will also go up, alongside the pay for apprentices, which will increase by an extra 20p an hour.
