UK: Seasonal farmworkers minimum hourly wage is confirmed

Britain’s Home Office has provided clarity on wage increases for seasonal workers recruited within this year’s Seasonal Worker Scheme for horticultural growers; a minimum wage rate of £10.10/hour has been confirmed. The government extended the Seasonal Worker Scheme in December to make 30,000-40,000 six-month visas available for the horticulture sector. But it also warned that the sector would need to improve pay and conditions as part of post-Brexit plans to reduce the reliance on migrant workers.

The Home Office has now confirmed that, from 6 April, visas will only be granted to workers through the Seasonal Worker Scheme if they are paid the minimum £10.10/hour, equivalent to a minimum salary of £26,500/year.
