The Intergenerational Foundation believes that the debate over this issue cannot ignore the wider socio-economic context facing young people. The key dilemma is that the National Minimum Wage rates for 16-17, 18-21 and 21-24 year-olds need to strike a delicate balance between, on the one hand, not harming the employment prospects of young people, and on the other, ensuring that young workers can earn adequate incomes to support themselves through work.
