Equestrian businesses need to prepare for minimum wage rise: ‘It’s not a choice, it’s the law’ *H&H Plus*

The Equestrian Employers Association (EEA) is urging yards to look at their business models ahead of a hike in the minimum wage.

The national living wage, the minimum legal hourly pay for workers aged 25 and over, and national minimum wages for all younger age brackets will increase on 1 April.

The living wage will rise by 6.2%, from £8.21 to £8.72 per hour — which the government says is the “biggest cash increase ever” — with increases of between 4.6% and 6.5% for younger workers on the minimum wage, dependent on their age.
