    What isn't right is that I am worth a lot more to my job than what they pay me. I can easily bring in over $1,000 per hour, but they only pay me $5.5. Which is *gestures with hand* this much more than minimum wage.

    Not sure how you mean that, but it's generally just sitting in a warm room for a few hours watching people swim! It can get boring, but the occasional nice looking girl wearing next-to nothing certainly changes that rather quickly!

    You need an NPLQ basically. It's not terribly challenging (well, if you can swim!) and only takes about a week.

    I'm 17. I get paid £9.30 an hour and I've had this job since I was sixteen.

    If I never had this job I would be spending about £300 a year on something else which this job gets me for free. So as you can imagine, it saves me a lot of money.
