    Hellooooo haha, sorry If this was posted in the wrong section but I didn't know where else to post.

    I'm in need of a bit of help with something; do you have to be in certain circumstances to get a Payrise or would it just be easier for me to find a new job?

    I'm 17, currently working full time as a waitress, and due to not being 18 yet, I'm on a £3.70/80(per hour) wage. Basically I just want to know whether I'd be able to get a payrise considering I do the same amount of work and hours(if not more) than people at my work who are 21+, and I have worked there for just over a year now.

    Someone please reply I'm in need of help desperately. Thank you! (Apologies once again if posted in wrong forum) ☺️

    Wages are minimum rates. An employer cant pay less but they cna pay more if they wish.
    When you reach 18 your rate will rise to £5.30.

    You cna ask fo a wage rise, but you have to convince them its in their interest i.e you are worth it and they should pay you or you will go elsewhere.


    if they say no , then be prepared to look elsewhere.
