The SLPU helplines have been inundated with calls from parents concerned that children are being exploited.
Throughout Scotland, 88 per cent of the vacancies in Job Centres reviewed in the survey failed to meet the SLPU's Minimum Wage Target Rate of pounds 5.55 per hour.
The SLPU survey showed that people in some areas of Scotland were worse off than others.
"This is far below the British average of pounds 464.70," an SLPU spokeswoman said.
The SLPU report also shows a widening of the gap between the wages of men and women.
The SLPU spokeswoman added 1.4 per cent of Scots live on less than the national minimum wage of pounds 157.76p per week or pounds 4.20 per hour.
