David Cameron is considering calls for the minimum wage to be frozen, according to the Daily Telegraph. The newspaper reports that the Government has given its strongest indication yet that levels could be held amid concerns that increases could deter firms from hiring new staff and could affect the recovery. The minimum wage for younger workers is reportedly most likely to be held. The Government-appointed Low Pay Commission, which recommends minimum wage levels, sent its report to Downing Street last week. In evidence to the Commisison, the Department for Business, Innovation & Skills said the body should “consider concentrating their attention on the effect of a rise in the adult national minimum wage on employment”.
