    totally agree, hence why so many people are claiming tax credits, because it isnt enough to live on, and why your age makes a difference is beyond me when you are doing the same job, you cant even say its because a 17 yr old is training to do a job because a 22yr old could be doing the same if never worked

    Exactly. Then take off 19/20% tax (dependant on bands etc) and that knocks a chunk off.

    I think the vital point you're missing is that it's based on a little more than your actual age. You're looking at it a bit too literally.

    care to share what else its based on?

    Si, no problemo.
    I'm no expert but for starters, how many children do you know that live at home at 16? How many do you know that live at home at 22? I don't know anyone over the age of 19 who hasn't moved out and gone to uni, therefore they need to support themselves (rent, bills) if they work.
    Have they already been working and therefore contributed to society?
    They're not entitled to the same benefits as younger people are?
    They are able to undertake more responsbility (ie people under 21 cannot be insured under company insurance policies the majority of the time)?
    ETC ETC ETC.

    You have misunderstood. I'm saying it's not based on age as a NUMBER. It's not like someone's gone "well a 16 year old isn't as good as a 25 year old so we'll pay them less"... there is reasoning behind it.

    sorry baffledsalmon then surely by your post, 19yr olds need as much money as over 21yr olds, as for working and contributing to society what has that got to do with how much a wage you need? younger people arent enttitled to benefits, well not unless under extreme circumstances, certainly not if they loie at home

    Well then maybe they should rethink the system for those between 18 and 21, but a 16 year old certainly doesn't need as much as a 22 year old! I don't know any 16 year olds who don't live at home (not saying it doesn't happen) and therefore they don't have to pay rent or bills, hence all the money they earn is their own!

    If you don't like the rates do something about it.

    why shouldnt two people doing the same job earn the same amount, this is purely about age, and naff all to do with anything else

    part of the age system is based on encouraging younger people to stay in education

    So if you worked and had been doing the same job for 20 years, and someone else who had never done it before came in and started working with you, would you expect them to get the same even though you've got 20 years of experience?

    Just because you don't know any 16 year olds that spend, or need, as much as a 22 year old doesn't mean that is the case for everyone. 16 year olds who work have outgoings if their parents decide (quite rightly) that they should pay their own way if they earn enough - clothes, games, mobile credit and general socialising. Different ages attract different outgoings.

    What you say is your own opinion and it isn't the same for everyone. Honest.

    Very good point. Although, it seems easy to give up education once you have a few ££ in your pocket.

    what about 1 yr experience, what about 2 yrs, what about me starting my 1st job ever at 22 and getting more than the 17 yr old girl who has been there a year

    I would also like to point out that even though you got that Supervisors job in McDonalds and are on £5.93 an hour, you only pay a measly £1k a year in tax. However, you'll quite happily be subsidised by Joe Bloggs who earns £60k a year, pays £1k tax a MONTH and pays for his own bills, whilst you're claiming housing benefit, council tax benefit, child benefit and tax credits?

    not sure who this is aimed at, but maybe time to end your discussion

    my lad who has just turned 17, still in full time education (6th form) as i said in a previous post is starting a part time job, because to be perfectly honest the money tree at the bottom of the garden, is starting to wilt a little, its not producing as many phone top cards, petrol for the moped,tax, insurance etc etc as it used, so time for him to help with some of the things he now requires, which is as much as his idea as ours, it worked for me.

    but Joe Bloggs can afford his mortgage payment and bills and still have money to buy himself a rolex.
