FT.com posted my article on July 31 2013 written by John McDermott reporting on the birthday of the national minimum wage.

The article describes the beginning of the National Minimum Wage and informs us that only few months into Tony Blair’s government it was argued that "coming up with the minimum wage that will not seriously harm the economy and destroy jobs will require the wisdom of Solomon ? or extraordinary luck" by The Economist. However today the National Minimum Wage Act turned 15 years old.

Employers are required to pay almost all workers at least the National Minimum Wage regardless of the size of the business. There are different rate of national minimum wage depending upon the workers age and if they are apprentice.The current rate for adults aged 21 and over is œ6.19 per hour due to be increased to œ6.31 per hour from 1 October 2013.

In order to be entitled to receive national minimum wage workers must be of a school leaving age (usually 16) and a contract of employment cannot take away the statutory right to receive national minimum wage. Part-time workers agency workers trainees and workers on probation are all also entitled to receive the statutory minimum for their age group.

However if you are self-employed a company director working on a government employment program a volunteer or a share fisherman amongst others there is no entitlement to the minimum wage.

The above-mentioned article goes on to tell us that "The minimum wage has been a success: all but ending exploitatively low pay while having a minimal impact on overall employment according to research. A poll of political scientists by the Institute for Government found it to be the most admired policy of the past 30 years. The Economist was wrong."
