YO! Sushi to pay National Living Wage to all ages

Restaurant chain YO! Sushi is to pay the National Living Wage to all of its 1,800 employees across the UK, regardless of age.

The move comes despite the fact that the National Living Wage of £7.20 an hour, introduced today, only applies to workers aged 25 or over.

"We are also very conscious and proud of the fact that many of our younger employees - and we have a lot - are extremely dedicated to YO! Sushi and regularly rise through the ranks into management positions. We want that positive and motivating culture to continue."

The pay rise for workers who were on the minimum wage comes in addition to a range of benefits for employees at all levels from kitchen porter to general manager, which include friends and family discounts and monthly incentives where team members earn ‘YO! Yen', which can be exchanged for rewards and vouchers, as well as a bonus scheme.
