What do you think about the Island's minimum wage rates?

What do you think about the Island's minimum wage rates?

The independent Minimum Wage Committee is now asking for views from businesses and individuals as part of a review of the system.

It comes after Enterprise Minister, Laurence Skelly MHK, asked the committee to make recommendations on any changes to the minimum wage which would come into effect later this year.

The committee will then consider any feedback it gets alongside matters in legislation such as effects on inflation, employment and pay structures.

Minister Skelly says: "The purpose of this review will be to ensure that the committee is able to fully examine the variety of challenges faced across our economy, so that any ultimate decision is fully informed by the challenges and views of the Manx community.

"Any changes to the minimum wage rate in the Isle of Man must balance the needs of employers and our working population, and continue to support the position of our Island as a progressive, diverse and attractive place to live and work."

Submissions can be sent in by e-mail to employment.dfe@gov.im before the deadline on Friday, June 4.

Submissions can also be sent by post to the address below:

The Secretary to the Minimum Wage Committee, Department for Enterprise, Nivison House, Prospect Hill, Douglas, IM1 5ET
