    you are gaining some life experience etc and even though its rubbish wages you are on the right road and am sure your parents are very happy you are working

    My friends daughter is also 17 and wont get off her fat backside to work as keeps saying the money is rotten. That sort of attitude drives me mad

    I thought it was £3.40 for 16/17 year olds?

    Wow... £3.75 an hour? That is POOR! Excuse the pun! I didn't even know you could get away with paying someone that! But at least you're working I guess! Maybe time to consider a new job... I worked the summer holidays between AS and A levels (so when I was 17) and I was on £8.60/hr?

    Yeah but really £3.40 or whatever, is it even worth bothering with?



    well hes to young to sign on so aye id say so matey

    also being in a job makes it easier to move to another than those who have lived off dole money for years

    OP, maybe try get on the new deal program? not sure if your to young?

    even go to college learn new skills, brush up on your english and so on.

    the longer someone is outta work the harder to get back in

    as do a grow programme

    anyone gets on it im sure

    they give you all skills you need, well not give but train you.

    while there you can even get the chance to get forklift trained, first aid trained, fire warden trained and so on

    all things that will add to your cv and job credibility
