    £20.00 / 8.5 = is £2.35 an hour. Well below minimum wage. If they're really paying you that, then they are comitting a criminal offence and you could probably do them for it.

    I’m 16 this January (so currently 15) and I’m on £10 an hour, that’s because it’s a specialist position tho. I’m a media assistant, and my job is to run and advise on the business’ social media

    The minimum wage for someone aged under 18 is £4.05 an hour as of April 2017. So you're getting over the minimum, but not massively. When I was 16, the minimum was around £3.79 and I was working a job that paid £4.50. Some people may be getting better pay than you, it depends on your employer. But it's better to have a job then no job at all, though.
