    What do supermarkets pay in salaries?

    I'm 15, 16 in July, and want to get a job when I'm sixteen.
    Preferably, I'm looking at around £30 an hour, but anything above £20 would suit me.
    Jussst kidding....

    guess i got lucky with my last job got adult min wage at 19

    I'd recommend Argos as a first job! They paid well in comparison to what my mates earned at the likes of tesco, morrisons, next, matalan, mcdonalds...etc, at 16 you'd be looking at about a fiver an hour, but Argos used to pay time+1/2 on Sundays! I dunno if they still do....

    How do people motivate themselves to go to work for so little?

    So you don't believe in higher wages?

    £6.50 an hour is a joke........no-one should have to be on such a low wage. Minimum wage should be higher than what it currently is.

    Besides my paper round my 1st job was the Army which paid a massive, £24 per day (technically in the Army you are available for work 24/7 365 days a year) so a massive £1 an hour.

    A lot more than £6.50 per hour. lol. I have children to maintain.

    I'd find it soul destroying. My first job almost 20 years ago paid more than that.

    at morrisons it'll probably be about 10-20p about minimum wage. thats what its like for everyone. time & a half for sundays but normal for bank hols, though you get an extra day added to your holiday entitlment.

    It wasn't intended in a mocking/smug way. More of that it's appalling that they can get away with paying people so little (especially when you look at the profits these supermarkets make).
