Esa support group and new minimum wage?

receding Community member Posts: 1 Listener
I am currently in the support group for esa and am fortunate for be able to work for under 15 hours a week. What happens when the minimum wage rises? do we have to work less to keep under the £152 or does that go up with the wage increase.

getting out for just 2 days a week is all I have and if I lose that then there is pretty much no hope.
