What is the hourly rate of pay paid to check-out staff in British supermarkets?
I'm trying to work out the thinking behind supermarkets laying off staff and replacing them with self-serve checkouts. Say the rate is £7 per hour, and the store opens 16hrs per day. That's £112 per day the store "saves" on wages. Surely management can't be so naive as to think that there won't be at least that much theft every day?

Typically a checkout operator gets paid around 50p above minimum wage in the big nationals, however they are usually on reduced hours. Two of my local supermarkets have self checkout tills, six for one and four for the other, both have a single supervisor in attendance... More
