Am looking after 4 children in Kildare, 14 year old, 5 yr old, 6yr old and 2 year old in their home school collections and cooking dinner for them. Working 30 hr week and getting 7.50 per hour. Amounts to 225euro per wk. Just wondering should I ask for more when they are on school hols? I don´t get paid for bank holidays or any holiday pay. Any advice would be much appreciated. Thank you.
