KFC pay scale
Fast food chains don’t pay a lot of money to their customer facing employees. That’s just the way it is but that doesn’t mean that you can’t earn okay money from KFC. The KFC pay scale begins at £4.20 per hour which doesn’t compare favourably with McDonalds as they pay at least £4.42, but it’s more than you can expect to earn from Burger King whose entry wage is an average of £3.84 per hour.UK minimum wage
The wage amounts we’re quoting are an average of the hourly rates paid out to employees of all ages.
