    So recently I got hired by IKEA and got a letter today detailing my wage and stuff, it says '£6.99 per hour (plus £1.28 location allowance)'

    What does that part mean? Do I get £8.27 an hour or what..

    Cheers

    I'd assume so, but I suggest asking them to confirm. My guess would be £6.99 is the standard wage for that job, but more expensive areas sometimes include extra in their pay to take account of the higher cost of living.

    London and the south-east are generally more expensive than other areas.
