Guernsey living wage to be investigated

Related Stories

A Guernsey living wage will be investigated, politicians have agreed.

Social Security Minister Allister Langlois suggested the move, which he believes could save the island money.

He said if people were paid a living rather than a minimum wage it would cut the amount of benefits the States paid out to low paid workers.

The States agreed the motion along with increases to the hourly minimum wage, up 20p to £6.50 for adults and up 75p to £5.25 for 16 and 17-year-olds.
