Tesco and Pizza Hut named and shamed over minimum wage breaches
Tesco, Pizza Hut and five star luxury hotel The Lowry are among almost 140 companies criticised by the UK government for failing to pay their workers the minimum wage. It is the first time the government has named and shamed companies for failing to pay the national minimum wage since 2018. Pizza Hut missed out on payments of £845,936 to 10,980 workers, while Manchester's Lowry Hotel failed to pay £63,431 to 99 workers. Last month, the government increased national living wage and national minimum wage rates from April 2021. Every worker is entitled to the national minimum wage, which will be increased by between 1.5 per cent and 2 per cent depending on age bracket, while the national living wage will increase 2.2 per cent to £8.91 an hour for workers aged 23 and above.
