Nope, its called a bonus rate or some other shite. They claim it's to incentivise, and that the rate is set so that employees will always make minimum wage.

I've never heard of anyone on the cards doing price work, you should get down the citizens advice bureau.
I used to employ a couple of guys on the cards that were also on a price. Obviously minimum guaranteed wage, plus sick and holiday pay. Worked like a productivity incentive. Everyone was happy. Well for a while.
