Paid Less Worth Less?

Paid Less Worth Less? Achieving Pay Equality for Under-25s


Young people should get the same pay for the same jobs because they have the same costs

Read the report

Young Women's Trust believes everyone should be given the same pay for the same jobs, regardless of age. Age should not determine worth and paying a fair wage benefits businesses as well as employees.

We are calling on the Government to, as a minimum, extend the National Living Wage to 21 year-olds and significantly increase the apprentice minimum wage.

Age discrimination

Young people might be paid less but they are #NotWorthLess. 

Employers recognise that young people are working hard and contributing a huge amount to their organisations. Doing the same work should mean getting the same wage - no matter your age.
