The National Minimum Wage: The Story So Far

_The National Minimum Wage: The Story So Far_ is the second report of the United Kingdom Low Pay Commission. The Commission was asked to monitor the results of the implemantation of the National Minimum Wage in April 1999. The first report mainly considered the impact of the National Minimum Wage on 21-year olds. This second report comes after a series of commissioned research projects, surveys, and seminars. Highlighted findings of the report show that "a large number of people have benefited" from the National Minimum Wage. Two-thirds of the beneficiaries are working women, two-thirds of whom work part time. Employment growth in low-paying sectors continued to rise. The main body of the report explains each of the measures taken by the Commission, including the sections "Young People and the Development Rate," "Managing the National Minimum Wage," and "Compliance and Enforcement." Finally, the Commission offers conclusions for this step of the process and explains its next steps. The .pdf format report is well-organized, and the main text of the report is supplemented by a sidebar that highlights important facts and findings.
