Increase minimum wage for under 20's

We are petitioning on this topic as we want minimum wage for this age group to be increased from the now £5.13, to the same as those over 21 £6.70.
We believe that young people are being discriminated against, as they are getting paid less for doing the same job as their peers who are over 21, more and more young people are beginning to go into employment at the age of 18 than ever before so we believe that there should be equal pay for those who are doing the same work regardless of their age.
