no no no there are so many restrictions for under 16s so they cannot and should not get same wage as an ADULT - RESPONSIBILITY comes into it - for your own protection as well

they already increase with inflation anyway, and if they go up youll have to pay higher prices for stuff so it makes no difference. For example if min wage were to increase by 5% companys will charge you 5% extra for the things you buy to compensate.
#15
one of the reasons for for the difference in wage is experience. 16 yr old dont have much experience and actually need a lot of looking after ate work even though they do not recognise it.

If the minimum wage for under 21's was raised to the same as over 21's there would in fact be an awful lot of unemployed youngsters. and who wants that.

I do think that all government ministers should also earn minimum wage, if they think it is good enough for others then it should be good enough for them

Thats not strictly true, a companies overall wage bill depending on how many empoloyers is likely to go up by less 0.1%

in some jobs yeah. But if you have a 16 year old who does the exact same job as a older person and they get paid more. Would you be pi**** off ?
#18
you technically cant work properly if you're under 16 as you need national insurance. but then again dont take a job if you are going to complain about the wage later. when i took a part-time job as a waiter when i was 16 i got paid less than everybody else but i was still happy with the wage and didnt complain. but anyway you should be aiming higher than the minimum wage in any circumstance.

but there are working restrictions on under 18's, not allowed to work longer than a certain number of hours, not allowed to work past a certain time, entiltled to longer and more breaks etc.
#20
meh, minimum wage worked fine for me when i was younger, many retailers will pay more than it. Im not farmiliar with many jobs around by me that only pay minimum wage

Having read the petition it seems like the creater is not really that hard done by. They are almost on minimum wage anyway!
