National living wage to rise by 6.2% in April

The national living wage is to rise by 6.2% in what the government says is "the biggest cash increase ever".
The rise is more than four times the rate of inflation and takes hourly pay for people over 25 to £8.72 from April.
Prime Minister Boris Johnson said: "For too long, people haven't seen the pay rises they deserve."
But businesses warned that a sharp increase in wages would put pressure on companies and urged the government to reduce costs elsewhere for firms.
The national living wage is the government-mandated minimum wage for over 25-year-olds. The minimum wage for under-25s will also rise.
