Taken from HM Revenue & Customs NMW page:
An employer must pay their workers a minimum amount as defined by law. This is called the National Minimum wage.
There are three levels of minimum wage, and the rates from 1st October 2005 are:
�5.05 per hour for workers aged 22 years and older
A development rate of �4.25 per hour for
workers aged 18 - 21 years inclusive
workers aged 22 years and above, starting a new job with a new employer and doing accredited training*
3.00 per hour which applies to all workers under the age of 18 who are no longer of compulsory school age**. This rate remains unchanged from the rate in force in the period 1st October 2004 to 30th September 2005.
*Accredited training is a course approved by the UK Government to obtain a vocational qualification.
**Compulsory School age
So, I believe the minimum you could pay him is �4.25 per hour, anything more, and its up to you!
