St1:
Insufficient. We have no idea how many hours he worked.

St2:
We do not know the rate. So we can't calculate his pay last week. Insufficient.

Using St1 and St2:
If he worked 8 hours from Mon to Sat --> 6*8 = 48, then on Sunday, he would have worked 6 hours.

If he worked 5 hours from Mon to Sat --> 5*8 = 40, then on Sunday, he would have worked 14 hours.

We can't work out the correct pay if we do not know how many hours he worked each day. Insufficient.
