    Self-explanatory thread title! Just wondering really - I'm looking for a new job and hoping to get more than the £4.50 per hour I'm getting at the moment working in a sandwich bar! Is this wishful thinking?!
    £4.65 an hour and then after you have finished filling in these silly books that the manager gives you the pay goes up to about £5.06

    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.
    It makes my back bad as well! I think I'm going to quit as soon as I can find another job, it's just too horrible there. It's really dirty in the shop too - I refuse to buy anything from there

    I only work there because it's the closest place to my house, I think I'm going to start thinking about using part of my pay to get a bus somewhere ^^;;

    I work in China so I make the equivalent of about $15 a day, however that's actually very good money here.

    I was on £7 working as a Christmas temp for the Royal Mail, though sadly that's over. That's including London weighting (not that I was in London, but never mind!) and pro rata holiday pay. Anyhow, it's a good student job as it fits in with the Christmas holidays but leaves you free after Christmas to do some academic work...you do have to be 18 though.

    What's vulgar about it? There's nothing wrong with comparing one's own earnings with those of one's peers. Ironically I think yours is the most vulgar post on this thread so far.

    I get £8.00ph for tutoring a guy doing AS Maths ans a couple of girls doing GCSE Physics, which isn't bad, and it's a pretty good rate for their parents really seeing as professional tutors can charge up to £30ph. I used to earn, about £7.00ph as a waitress (in London), most of which was tips, so that was cool.

    Harsh words. I'd agree my job is pathetic. Which is the reason I'm looking for another one, or did you not read my original post?
