Interesting Fact - Pocket Money

According to the Halifax bank, over the last 27 years pocket money in the UK has outstripped wages with payouts to children up 462%.

(Children have seen a rise from on average  £1.13 a week to  £6.35, but over the same period, the typical annual wage for working adults has increased by just 188%, from £11,648 in 1987 to £33,511 in 2014.

I think the difference is that children aren't afraid to ask for a rise.  After all, no one is going to sack them because they cost too much, are they?)
