    unfair pay any advice? 8th Apr 08 at 11:19 AM
    Hi everyone!

    I work in retail on a part time contract (14 hrs per week)
    Some time ago I found out that a colleague was getting more pay than me, he was getting £4.85 per hour when I was getting £4.70 and we were the same age but I had worked for the company a lot longer.

    When I first found out I approached the manager and he simply said "you shouldnt discuss your wages"since then he has always been getting more pay, when the yearly wage rises come around his wages always stay above mine. At the last wage rise it went up to £4.82 and he got £4.97 and another colleague who is younger is also getting more pay. It sounds like the company completely hate me! its not a big difference in wages but I feel discriminated against.

    Has anyone else experienced similar problems and what have you done to rectify them?

    thanks in advance
