According to the Trades Union Congress;
“As of 1 October 2007, the adult rate for workers aged 22 and over is £5.52 per hour. The development rate for 18-21 year olds and for workers receiving accredited training in the first 6 months of a new job is £4.60 per hour. The rate for 16-17 year olds starts lower at £3.40 an hour.”
No I haven’t just noticed this, but I want this to be a key campaign for BULS over the coming 12 months. I find it completely abhorrent that we treat our younger workers differently. Now that the minimum wage has successfully worked, whilst still promoting economic growth, lets build upon our foundations and really entrench it into society, as a cornerstone achievement of this Government.
