£4.30, time and a half on Sundays and double time on Bank holidays/other public holidays.

Not the worst it could be, given that my minimum wage is £3.00...


Proportionally though, I'll be worse off in relation to that after March, as even though it goes up to £4.85 when I'm 18, that's much closer to the minimum wage.




Hm.

My friend's new job pays £6.80 an hour! it's a library. She'll only be doing four hours a week though.

It's bloody hard work, but you can make LOTS of money in tips. I got about £800 in tips just over christmas.
yeah, thats why its good, i've worked as a waiter and in safeway, safeway was really easy i spent the whole time doing nothing and its boring when you are doing stuff.
Being a waiter is very good in compairison

you should be getting paid £3, anything less is slave labour, actually I think even £4 is nearing slave labour.

I once did a job for £60 a week working 9-5 but it was a modern accetenceship for some reason after two weeks I thought this crap and decided to go to college then onto university.

The Government has accepted the Low Pay Commission's recommendations for a new rate for 16 and 17 year olds (above compulsory school leaving age).*

£3.00 per hour from 1 October 2004

NB: 16 and 17 year old apprentices will be exempt from the new young workers rate.

This means that a boss must pay a 16 year old at least £3 an hour otherwise quite frankly they should get into big trouble.

I never realised just how well paid university support staff were paid :p: That must be more than some lecturers get paid. Thats £34,320 although I know its probably more like £30k and probably about £27k by the time you pay tax but its still a lot.

If I worked full time I would be on £16,640 but I would have to pay taxes on that.

It's not that much - you're discounting holidays - I only work 215 days per year...at 7 hours a day

Argh ok, I was doing it 52 weeks at 8 hours a day Althogh I realise 48 weeks is probably more typical.

Lets hope Pig dosn't reply to this, he probably earns more an hour than most people put together on here. I think my dad was on about £15 an hour in 1997 when he left but then had been doing the same job for 25 years so it should have been decent pay.

£4 an hour for standing about in a shop and occasionally selling things to customers. Also known as a Co-op food store.

It's incredibly boring and badly paid...generally quite sucky.
Wow they must have increased the pay then.
last June I worked there and was paid about £3.73 an hour.
Was terrible. Health and safety would have had a field day there, I think my back is still dodgy from them actually. They would expect me to come in for overtime with 2-3 hours notice. Soooo glad I don't work there anymore, they wanted me to go back as well. HA.

Now getting £5.25 to sit in a kitchen, eating biscuits and chatting to my Mum. Ocassionally playing connect four or Ludo, messing about on the PS2 or watching a film (or my choice most Fridays). And we get given flowers/wine/chocolates etc in the holidays.
