    When I was 17, I worked at a camping during summer, there I got £11 an hour, and I worked part-time in a restaurant where I got £13 an hour.

    Now, I'm 19 and work in a Norwegian version of Tesco, and I get £21 an hour.
    Sweet times! I'm now working hard, saving up to move to Britain in september.
    And just to rub it in furthermore: WOW, you guys are getting low salaries compared to us! :P
    Yeah but the Norwegian cost of living and rates of taxation are so much higher than here so it's on par really!

    Subways are franchised, so only 3 subways in derbyshire went bankrupt, not all of them.
