This paper examines the issues surrounding minimum wages and argues for a simplification of the minimum wage structure facing employers, recognising changes, which have occurred in the labour market since the National Minimum Wage was introduced.

It also argues that politicians should avoid wage setting as far as possible and restore greater responsibility to the Low Pay Commission (LPC).
