    Im 17 and am currently in sixth form, During the summer period i have gone out and got a summer job, however i am very dissappointed by the pay, and was just wondering if it was in line with the minimum wage etc?

    Im working temporaily throughout the summer with a landscape gardening firm, doing various gardening jobs and was just wondering what the minimum wage was for such a job for someone of my age?

    Thanks

    Minimum wage for a 17 year old is £3.53, goes up to £4.77 when you turn 18. Are you on more than this?

    most people don't have the luxury of being able to get a better job.

    Yes, I might have been rejected from McDonalds but I got accepted into Sainsburys instead :p:

    Therefore we can conclude I do not fit the profile of a Mcdonalds worker (an unquestioning, automatron of a worker) but instead of a Sainsburys worker, dedicated to giving good quality customer service to a very discerning audience. Besides - all the piano teaching has clearly made you into a snob - an undesirable quality in today's society :p: :p:


    And before this thread is taken too far off course I used to be paid £4 hourly when I worked at a garden centre over the summer last year. However, I was 15 at the time so I thought this was a very good wage.
