Not being on the dole is about all you can hope for at the moment, PHD grad or not.

God I've had so many jobs lol. My first one was in dominos pizza at 16 and I got £4odds. Then I ended up in a butchers on a saturday, still 16, and got £3.55, but I was bullied really badly there by the supervisor and all my family kept telling me to quit. My gran was going to go down and yell at the woman But then I got my christmas Game job and that was £5.50odds. I was so surprised about how much money it was lol.
In disney I got $7.45 which was round about £4ish, which was a bit crap especially since it was so expensive for food and accomodation there!
But then my best paying job was in Lloyds tsb, I was on £8.50ph plus 10% extra for working after 8pm and 15% extra for working Sundays
Then working in a law firm I got £50 a day and I worked 2 1/2 days a week. So that was good plus real work experience for my career. Now I'm poor as I aint got no job. But it's exams and such and I've just applied to work in eurocamp.
I know that doesn't really answer your question but I'm just showing how much variety and how luck comes into it.

I was paid £5.50 in my first job when I was 16, but usually you're expected to work for minimum wage or slightly more in part-time/temporary work.

I am 17 and work in Waitrose on £6.29 an hour but get time and a half on Sundays so on average it works out to about £8 an hour, plus all the JLP benefits.
