Increase the youth employment minimum wage for 16-17 year olds

Dear Department for Work and Pensions,
The current youth minimum wage for a 16-17 year old is £3.68. This wage is extremely bad, with many companies exploiting this, with 16-17 year olds doing the same job as an adult.

With inflation increasing, I believe an increase in the minimum wage for youth employment should be raised drastically to around the £4 mark.
