Pay at least normal minimum wage for those on apprenticeships
This petition had 9 supporters
Apprentices are being paid below minimum wage which puts people off doing them in the first place.
A friend of mine was on an apprenticeship and was fired within a few weeks of employment and was paid less than minimum wage for her time working there.
Apprenticeships should attract people of all ages and aspirations. The UK needs skilled workers and the government should be encouraging uptake of apprenticeships as much as possible.
