Women in Wales are expected to be among those benefitting the most from the new national living wage, which comes into force next year.
From April 2016, firms across the UK will have to pay all workers over 25 at least £7.20 an hour, up from the current minimum wage of £6.50.
According to new analysis by the Resolution Foundation, the change will result in 6 million workers across the UK - including 3.7 million women - receiving an average pay rise of £1210.
The analysis suggests that women in Wales, the Midlands and Yorkshire and the Humber will be among those benefitting the most.

House sellers' asking prices edged up slightly in Wales in August, a time traditionally when buyers were able to snap up a property at a bargain price over the summer holidays.
They rose by 0.2% according to property website Rightmove. It means the average price is £177,709.
Across the Wales and England a 0.8% or £2,258 month-on-month price fall took the average asking price to £292,284.
The underlying shortage of property coming to market compared to buyer demand has helped to deliver the strongest August price performance since before the credit crunch.
Buyers can normally pick up some bargains in August as sellers who are marketing their homes when they should be holidaying often have a pressing need to sell and mark their prices down pretty aggressively.
