Guernsey States consults on minimum wage

A consultation on Guernsey's minimum wage has been launched by the Commerce and Employment Department.

The States first introduced minimum pay in October 2010 and it has been reviewed annually since.

Last year there was a 2.5% increase in the minimum wage and associated rates, which include accommodation and food supplied by an employer.

Islanders can take part by filling out a questionnaire, which is available online or from Raymond Falla House.

The minimum wage for adults in currently £6.15 an hour, while workers aged 16 to 18 earn a minimum of £4.35 an hour.

The department said it would accept responses until 14 March.
