NFRN Criticises Proposed Minimum Wage Hike

The National Federation of Retail Newsagents (NFRN) has expressed disappointment at proposals to increase the minimum wage by 50c from January 2016.

If it is accepted by the Irish government, a recommendation recently issued by the Low Pay Commission will see wages go from €8.65 to €9.15 an hour.

NFRN Ireland District President, Peter Steemers commented, “If approved by the government the increase is certain to cause further hardship to small retailers and many will need to curtail hours offered to employees.”

The Low Pay Commission’s recommendation is set to be addressed by the Government in October as part of Budget 2016.
