Low Pay Commission

The Low Pay Commission makes recommendations to the Minister for Enterprise, Trade and Employment designed to set a minimum wage that is fair and sustainable.

When appropriate the minimum wage can be adjusted to assist as many low-paid workers as possible without harming overall employment or competitiveness.

The Low Pay Commission has recommended a €1.40 increase in the 2024 National Minimum Wage. Read the Low Pay Commission Annual Report 2023.
