|Authors: ||Sutherland, Holly|
|Issue Date: ||16-Jun-2004|
|Abstract: ||The analysis presented in this paper considers the impact on poverty rates of the Labour government�s tax and benefit policy changes in combination with the introduction of the National Minimum Wage (NMW). It examines the contribution of the NMW to direct poverty reduction and to �making work pay�. It concludes that the main contribution made by the NMW to poverty reduction at the household level is probably through its role in underpinning the operation of in-work top-up benefits.|
