I am looking into setting up my own cleaning business.
If I took someone on once my business grows, would £7 per hour plus 50p per job (toward petrol etc) so a total of £7.50 per hour be a reasonable wage? I know the minimum wage is £6.50 in the UK as I have spent 12 years earning the minimim wage. My clients are paying £10 per hour/job so my business would earn £2.50 which will pay for holiday pay, CRB, materials, insurance etc in the long run.
Just wanted some advice if £7.50 is adequate.
