    Ok, saw this, but thought it would be useful to expand for any job or wotnot. To see who's stingiest, like.

    So... State your EMPLOYER and your HOURLY RATE. I'll go first.

    - Rowland's Pharmacy
    - £4.50 per hour (I think)
    Awww, you're an ickle baby Your point about determining the stingiest employer, just for the record, would only work on the basis of everyone being on some sort of parity. However, because there are varying levels of minimum wage (based on your age), such parity cannot be achieved. For instance, you say you're only getting £4.50 an hour, but it'd be illegal for an employer to pay me that little because I'm a few years older than you and fall under a different age band for minimum wage. For grannies like me, employers must pay us a minimum of £5.73 p/h. If you're 18-21, employers can get away with only giving you £4.77, and if you're 16/17 and your employer's really stingy, you could get as little as £3.53.

    Out of interest, my friend who is 16 gets paid £3 an hour, I told him it is under minimum wage, but I think given the climate he appreciates the job more then the **** wage, what can he do to sort this??

    Ah, if he's 16, it's a teeny bit more complicated. The ruling for that age band is as follows:
    £3.53 per hour for all workers under the age of 18, who are no longer of compulsory school age

    * Compulsory School Age
    In England and Wales: a person is no longer of compulsory school age after the last Friday of June of the school year in which their 16th birthday occurs.

    In Scotland: pupils whose 16th birthday falls between 1 March and 30 September may not leave before the 31 May of that year. Pupils aged 16 on or between 1 October and the last day of February may not leave until the start of the Christmas holidays in that school year.

    In Northern Ireland: a person is no longer of compulsory school age after the 30th June of the school year in which their 16th birthday occurs.
    If he is no longer of compulsory school age, particularly if this was fairly recent, maybe he could just have a word with his employer to clarify the situation - it could be that at the time he started work he was still of compulsory school age and then at the end of June he then qualified for the minimum wage and the employer has taken a while to update the records or something. The alternative would be to make a formal complaint. http://www.hmrc.gov.uk/nmw/#e

    Blimey that is confusing, his birthday is Christmas Eve, so I imagine that means he should be on £3.53, thank you!!
