Young People Challenged by Increasing Financial Pressure

“At the end of September 2019, there were 5.5 million people aged 18 to 24. Of these, 1.9 million were in full-time education and 3.4 million were in employment. With a minimum wage rate of £4.35 an hour for Under 18s (or £3.90 for apprentices), increasing to £8.21 rate for over 25s, median weekly pay for 16-17-year olds working full-time in April 2019 was £201.20, £350 for 18-21-year olds, and £494.60 for 22-29-year olds.

Across the UK, the median weekly pay for total employees of all ages working full-time was £585. Further issues can be seen in disparities between male and female pay, with the female median pay around £14 per week less than the male median for those aged 18-21, while for 22-29s, female pay was around £32 per week less.”  Read more
