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.
In 2021, the Low Pay Commission recommended
that that the rate of the National Minimum Wage for an experienced adult worker be fixed at a rate of €10.50 per hour.
