The minimum wage for adults in Jersey could rise by 10p per hour next April.

If the proposal by Jersey's Employment Forum is approved, it will take the current hourly rate of £6.53 to £6.63.

First-year trainees will receive £4.90 and the rate for trainees in their second year will increase to £5.71.

From 1 October, the national minimum adult wage in the UK will rise by 12p an hour to £6.31, while in Guernsey the hourly rate will also go up to £6.50 from next month.

The Employment Forum was set up in 1999 and is made up of a panel of nine people.

Three employers, three employees and three independent representatives are appointed by the social security minister for a three-year term.

Minister Francis Le Gresley would need to justify his decision if he did not accept the forum's recommendations.
