The new National Living Wage (NLW) rates will mostly benefit front-of-house workers, who will see their hourly wage increased to be more in line with that of their counterparts in back-of-house roles, according to new research from Fourth.  

For businesses, however, it said this means a further squeeze on margins to accommodate the new pay rates.
