I applied to a job on a government scheme made for young people who have struggled to get a job and found this fabulous internship that offered London’s living wage on the government universal credit website.
However now I’m being paid minimum wage for 18-21 which is substantially less. I was never told that it would be different and am now being told it was a ‘glitch’ by HR except why didn’t they warn me if they knew about it.
The problem is it does say minimum wage on my contract. I’m not sure what to do as it’s my first proper job and its a great opportunity for the industry I want to go into but I’m so frustrated because I turned down two higher paying jobs thinking this paid more.
