The ESRI and the Low Pay Commission jointly published “A Study of Sub-Minimum Wage Rates for Young People”, a new report that examines international practice on the extent to which sub-minimum wage rates are paid within National Minimum Wage (NMW) frameworks and how such wage rates are generally designed.
The report also uses historical data from 2009 to examine the extent to which the estimated incidence of the NMW in Ireland varies according to the measurement approach adopted, and to identify broad characteristics of minimum wage employees and employers of minimum wage workers.
