Surely there has to be something wrong with the system if your looking enviously at young people because companies can pay them less than they could possibly live on.

"Bloody companies treating kids like dirt...why won't they treat me and my wife like dirt?"

Yeah, the system is broken...

I think the minimum wage should be £9 per hour, £10 per hour in the London Boroughs. Anyone under the age of 18, £4 per hour. How that compares with current public pay I have no idea. Maybe if these levels were brought in there would be less people happy to sit on their hands for benefits.

A legal minimum wage for under 18ís too much below adults and itíll damage a lot of retail employment for adults, either in full time, or part time roles to make ends meet.

Fair comment, I just think there needs to be a differentiation to encourage youngsters to either study up to 18 or seek an apprenticeship of some sort. If they know they wonít get the full amount until18 it might dissuade them from taking early employment, although I get what you are saying.

It"s a race to the bottom already- and is only going to get worse!

Yeah, agree with the £10 an hour, we can skim it off the top if they can"t afford it- no room at the bottom these days to lower wages.

I think youngsters still have to study up to 18. Part time retail work for them is often one day at the weekend and either one or two evenings. If retailers on Saturday and Sundays hire as many under 18ís and the least amount of adults and it works then they will, and they donít need as many Monday-Friday. Does the current wage jump to full minimum wage at 18? I thought it didnít until a few years later. Isnít that the same with jobseekers as well? 21 or 24 or something?
