On January 1st 2024, there are two new important changes that will come into effect.
These changes will impact workers in Ireland. The minimum wage will increase to €12.70 per hour. Everyone over the age of 20 has a right to be paid the minimum wage, regardless of sector, place of work or immigration status.
