Default Legal minimum wage for hospitality staff in ENGLAND, UK

Could anyone tell me what the legal minimum wage is for people in the
hospitality industry in England.. i.e, waitstaff, bus-boy, dishwasher,
etc. Is it legal for restaurants to pay you at only £5.00, which is
below the minimum wage bracket and claim to make the rest of your wage
up in tips? Even if this particular restaurant does not get many tips
received from customers to begin with? I could understand if the staff
were making £50.00 a shift extra in either cash or credit card tips
per person.. however, it is not even close to the case! Any shed of
light on this would be muchly appreciated. I personally believe
Caprice Holdings has the right idea when they pay their floor staff and
kitchen hands at a rate of £7.50-£8.00 an hour, making it more of an
insentive to go into work for the type of work you actually do. They
do keep a percentage of the credit card tips but all in all you make a
fairly decent wage from it regardless of the percentage they take. Why
can't it be that simple every where?!

Thanks in advance;

$9.00 in the us , and can be lived on well if your shop with care.

Google is your friend if the OP had just put "minimum wage UK" in to
google they would have got this below so if you are over 22 and not
getting £5.35 a hour
( here in the usa that like over $3 more then we get in minimum wage
in the highest rate state.)


There are three levels of minimum wage, and the rates from 1st
October 2006 a

* £5.35 per hour for workers aged 22 years and older
* A development rate of £4.45 per hour for workers aged 18-21
inclusive
* £3.30 per hour for all workers under the age of 18, who are no
longer of compulsory school age.


also with that you get what like £854 a month on min wage. when the
income tax hits for 300 that 554 left
so in East London £290 - £390 (single) for to rent a Flat
Average weekly grocery bill (including food, basic laundry and
toiletry items for 1 person) £30
so whats the big deal you can live in london on min wage better then i
can live in portland oregon usa on min wage
so again i got my passport i can cook where is the job i can be there
in two weeks
no joke
