MINIMUM WAGE INCREASE IN ST HELENA

The minimum wage in St Helena will be increased from July this year by 7 pence per hour.

That will take the rate to £3.25 for persons over 18 and £2.30 for persons aged 16 or 17.

The South-Atlantic territory’s Executive Council said it approved the new Minimum Wage Policy on March 30th “which sets out the principles for establishing a longer-term path to a more ambitious Minimum Wage, benefitting workers and providing adequate time for businesses to plan and adapt.”

It said in the coming months, the Employment Rights Committee will engage with employers, employees and other relevant stakeholders, to gather information “that will inform a target Minimum Wage and proposed timetable for achieving that target over the next 3-7 years.”
