Susan Anderson, Neil Goulden and Heather Wakefield will meet a number of representatives at Harlow College to hear first hand what impact the National Minimum Wage is having on businesses and workers.

Low Pay Commissioner Heather Wakefield said: "Hearing directly from those affected by the National Minimum wage is an important part of the Commission's work and informs our recommendations to the Government. Our visits take us around the UK and we welcome the opportunity to hear how the National Minimum Wage has affected people working and studying at Harlow College."
