“[The GMB has welcomed news of tomorrow's increase in the minimum wage to more than £5 an hour for adult workers.
The increase comes after the government accepted the recommendations of a report from the low pay commission. Further increases could take place after another report by the commission next year.
] We welcome the increase in the national minimum wage to £5.05 an hour and we look forward to the new rate of £5.30 next year, ... This will be of great benefit to many of Britain's low-paid workers and is one of the major achievements of the Labour government.”
