– UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson will announce a rise in the minimum wage within weeks, as he pledges to end the “broken” model of a low-wage, low growth economy, The Times newspaper reported.

Johnson will accept recommendations of independent advisers that are likely to boost the pay of the lowest earners to about 9.42 pounds ($12.84) an hour, the newspaper said.
