Government announces plans to increase pay transparency

The Government has announced plans to launch an online tool that will make it easier to find out how much people are paid in different occupations, sectors and regions across the UK

The Government has announced plans to launch an online tool that will make it easier to find out how much people are paid in different occupations, sectors and regions across the UK, with the aim being that increased transparency will see the wages of people on low pay increase. The information will be made available online through the National Minimum Wage Accelerator and the data will display information about pay in full-time and part-time roles across every level in every sector. Users will be able to see general pay trends across the UK, as well as being equipped with factual data that will enable them to discuss their pay with their own employers. The Government believe that as some 25% of workers who receive the National Minimum Wage are not working in low-paying sectors, this suggests that many of their employers may be able to raise wages without damage to their business.
