    My employers have tried to pull the wool over my eyes by paying me less than minimum wage but I caught them out. I am due to be paid again but just wanna double check my calculations on here from people who are better at maths lol, so I can ensure I get paid correctly again.

    If I work for £5.30 an hour from 3pm-10:45pm, how much will I earn?

    And If I work for £5.30 an hour from 5:30pm-9pm how much will I earn?


    The first shift would be 41.08 and the other 18.55
    So in total 59.63 ☺️

    If this hasn't already been solved (noticed it being posted 5 days ago so you may have been paid already) the actual values for your first shift could vary slightly. You may or may not get paid for 15 minute installments. So you may get paid for 7.5 hours or it may get rounded up to 8 hours. Or you may get paid for 7.75 hours.
