$15 an hour seems pretty high. I remember getting paid $7 an hour as a 15yo in a supermarket. Granted that was a number of years ago!

As for the age, I’ve always considered 15 to be the minimum. But you do see younger, especially in newspaper routes and the likes. It’s all industry relative I guess.

What industry are you in?

Hi Chris,

This is based off the link that was given to me. I’m involved in a few industries (IT, retail etc).

I’m looking at all the industries whether its supermarket or web design, each has their own standards which is why the rates can vary, however there has to be a minimum for everything!
