Homebase pay 4.86 per hour, however, when you hit 18 it goes up to about.. 6.08 per hour. They also add something like, 1.20 per hour when you work on Bank Hoildays

The job was advertised as "meets min wages". He has had an interview with Asda which stated the same but Asda pay under 21's the same rate as over 21's
