I think you will find both companies DO comply with the minimum wage laws in the united kingdom. If you think otherwise I suggest you phone the number below but you will look very silly.

I think you misread him. He(she?) said:

work for tesco or maccy d's at awkward hours. they pay extra. and they're big companies who would not give you £3/hour and break the law.

I.e. these companies would pay you decent (at least minimum) wages, NOT the £3 an hour that this company offered, and they would NOT break the law.

I'm 17 and I'm gonna start a 2hr paper round paying £4.60... it's the only job I've found so far that I can do while still at school that doesn't want experiance.

When I hit 18 will they have to give me a wage rise - or are they more likely to lay me off?
ive currently got a sunday morning paper round and i get £7 for an hour and half. if i go to the job at £3 an hour, i'll have to quit the p round but id be earning £15 for 5 hours.

thats the choice im faced with as well

Just another note of warning, if he the boss is breaking the minimum wage law then he is likely to be breaking other laws such as income tax, employee liability insurance, working condition laws (how much breaks you get). Also I would not expect a decent reference from a boss like that.

I'd say the best part time job i ever had whn i was at college was at B&Q. Loads of people there all in the same boat - earning money to try and keep a few litres of petrol in your car to make it to college the next day.

I started on around the £5.50 mark but you get more the older you are and the longer you stay. Sunday work is also pretty good pay as well.

I was getting about £300 a month part time - not bad considering I was being paid to have a laugh.
