How is that possible? How does that happen? Are there really people out there other than Philip J Fry who are willing to accept being paid under minimum wage?
Comparing this with the shit that goes on in the us makes for an interesting image.
Like shit, a government that actually shames companies for mistreating workers? Instead of colluding openly with corporations? What a novel concept.
Am I reading this right, or that is basically nothing given the size of the economy ? I mean look at this example... lol.
I remember when the minimum wage increased in Scotland and it took my old company 3 months to update my pay and never paid me the difference in what I was owed.
The greed of these businesses is resulting in an lower quality of life for the workers along with an increasing strain on our social security service equivalent
I worked minimum wage in the uk and pretty much had all i needed and then some
Saved like 1500 quid in three months
Why aren't these companies being fined? They're just saying who does it and not doing anything about it...
One of the more common ways is smaller businesses docking 10% of your hours for breaks you aren't allowed to have, especially in the service industry, so you end up at below minimum wage.
The lower classes are completely fucked here.
Nobody wants you on welfare, the welfare system is designed to be impossible to live on for any length of time, and yet finding a job that actually pays the minimum wage, let alone a wage you can live on is like winning the fucking lottery.
So even if you do tirelessly search for a job, you are more than likely just looking for a way to significantly lower your income while suddenly incurring travel expenses etc and losing all financial support.
Perhaps instead of 'naming and shaming' them, something should be done about it?
reminds me, just yesterday I went to a business networking thing and met a dude who manages for a limo company in the area. Sent the info to a friend who's driven in the past and has been looking at uber for opportunities lately, and he immediately told me who owned the company and that you have to lease a limo from the company for 400/week in order to drive it, and you're required to drive 6 full workdays a week
like dude what
It's getting to the point where people have full time jobs yet still have to apply for tax credits and housing benefit.
If your job pays less than welfare, there's something wrong with your job, not with welfare. Why work to make everyone equality as miserable when you could instead be working to improve things for everyone?. Just makes no sense to me.
