    £3.68 - the 16-17 rate for workers above school leaving age but under 18

    Google

    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
    Did he not ask before applying for the job ?

    Thanks I know the min age for a 16 year old is £3.68 but ASDA are going to pay him the same rate they pay over 21's, was just wondering if Homebase paid a higher rate.
