Guernsey minimum wage increase of 15p considered
Increases in Guernsey's minimum wage have been put forward by the Commerce and Employment Department.
It has also proposed a drop from 19 to 18 in the age at which islanders qualify for the higher adult rate.
The department has suggested a 15p increase to £6.30 an hour for adults and a 14p rise to £4.50 an hour for those aged 16-17.
It has also released a warning for employers as, if approved, the new rates would take effect from 1 October.
The increases have been suggested after a review and public consultation.
If approved, the new adult rate would be higher than the UK's £6.19 an hour but lower than Jersey's £6.48 an hour.
Guernsey first introduced a minimum hourly wage in 2010, which was £6 for adults and £4.25 for those aged 16-18.
The proposals are due to be debated by the States in September.
