Thread: Minimum wage

  1. #1

    Minimum wage

    Could you survive on minimum wage?
    Survive might be a bit strong, but how would it affect your outgoings / incomings if you and your partner were on minimum wage?
    I'm on minimum wage (cringe) and I work as a HGV driver (skilled work?)
    I'm lucky enough to be able to work 8-10 hours a week overtime (lucky I hear you say )
    If I don't work over 48 hours, I take home less than 350.
    I'm up in the valleys so my rent/mortgage isn't that high - 400 per month.

    I earn quite a bit less than you but only do 23 hours a week. Im thinking of asking for a further reduction to around 17 hours.

    Id opt for more free time over money everytime.

    Depends how expensive your hobbies/leisure activities are though I suppose.
