The Low Pay Commission estimates that there were 1.9 million jobs paid at or below the NMW in April 2017, around 6.7% of all employee jobs. This compares to 1.5 million jobs paid at or below the NMW in 2015, before the introduction of the National Living Wage. The coverage of the NMW is expected to increase to around 3.4 million employees by 2020 as the National Living Wage moves towards its 2020 target.

Why can't you just live within your means? Minimum wage jobs were designed for high school and college kids that still live at home.

Then when they finally get a job, they cry about what they're making.
