At the moment there is no legal minimum wage for people under the age of 16, but there are many under 16s that are working. This could allow for exploitation to happen as the young person could be doing too much work and not receiving enough pay. We propose that a new law concerning minimum wages for under 16s should be introduced. We believe that under 16s should have the same working rights as those who are over 16. This way all people under 16 will be working for the same amount of money. Having a minimum wage will ensure that we all have the right to equal opportunities!
