National Living Wage ‘has not hit employment’
The National Living Wage has not affected employment, says the body that monitors low pay for the government.
The Low Pay Commission said it had found “no clear evidence” of changes in employment or hours since the higher minimum wage was introduced in April.
It said employment had continued to rise even in sectors most obviously affected, such as cleaning, hotels, horticulture and retail.
The finding contradicts warnings from economists over the wage’s impact.
