    That's below legal minimum wage, you know?

    I know, but I'm in no position to do anything, the pub is the only place in walking distance, and if I asked for more, they'd sack me. I'd rather £3 an hour than nothing.

    I work for a theatre school teaching classes and workshops.
    I'm only contracted for 2 x1hr classes a week, however I often cover classes.

    Pay varies- cover rate is £20p/h, normal rate is around £12.50, assisting is £7.50- however I've been paid up to £100p/h before (it was for a government event and I was contracted in to lead some workshops).

    It would be difficult to live on full time due to the nature of the work, but for a part time job it's absolutely perfect

    So they advertised a job but wouldn't offer you a proper contract of employment?

    Working at the university (doing stuff I'd do for free like open days) we get £6.46 an hour but they add holiday pay which goes up to £7.17 an hour. It's not bad really for chatting to people all day and helping out with clearing :3

    I phoned them asking if they had any job vacancies, they told me they were short staffed and could use a part time waitress, no contract, no paying tax etc(not that they mentioned this to me before I'd done my first shift :rolleyes:, very sly and basically they're doing what they want, which I hate but it's a lose/lose situation.

    I occasionally babysit my mums friend's kids for ( usually) £5 an hour. It's not a proper contracted job or anything, but I can't find a job anywhere :/

    Work for an agency , providing staff to pretty big events/places like royal ascott/the olympics and lords...along with many others in and around London.

    Pay fluctuates depending on the job..for instance royal ascott was minimum wage (for a 21 year old and i'm 20 so above minimum for me ) and plus we got about 40 pence an hour holiday pay so round about 6.48 an hour.

    However olympics the pay has gone all the way up to 8.30 an hour...not too bad considering it's the first job i've ever had :P.

    Fair enough. If you accepted the deal then it's your choice as much as theirs. I guess you could report them, but you would lose your income for sure.

    I work in a School Uniform Shop. £5 per hour with extras for high Sales Averages. I started as part-time but as the schools break out I work practically full time. Last week I worked around 40 hours :| It's decent work though and the kids are cute

    I work at the Motorcycle Museum by Birmingham Airport on weddings, events etc. £6.25 an hour, but it's only when they need us so in the Winter we barely get any work, but we get quite a lot in summer. I would like a regular job where I have set hours though, but I've gave up looking especially as I'm going to university.

    Promotional Work/Brand Ambassador- around £16 per hour for the main one I do, some other clients pay a bit less, but never no less than £10 per hour. Plus expenses such as travel, food and hotel stays. It's part-time/on and off whenever there are campaigns around my area and stuff I want to do.. Good money though, I pretty much cleared off my overdraft by doing 10 days of work last month But you can't rely on this job for regular income..
