    Depends what you're doing and if you're enjoying it.
    Making yourself miserable for £7.50 an hour isn't worth it, but if you enjoy it, yeah it's not bad (given the minimum wage for under 18's is £4.00 a hour).

    When I was 16, my first retail job paid me £5.08. You're on a decent wage for your age trust me.

    That's not a good wage for someone working full time and depending on that wage, but for a teenager who's working part time it's brilliant.

    Working a 40 hour week that equates to over £15.5k a year, so as a starting wage for a sixteen year old I would say that is actually pretty good.
