/ No job unless you're Polish
So what would you consider a 'decent' living UK wage? I pay my staff above the national average, I give them 28 days holiday per year, an extra weeks PAID holiday at time and a quarter after 10 years (then 15, 20, etc years service), pay them for their breaks, respect the right to belong to a trade union, pay for taxis if staff have no other way of getting home on late shift overtime, send all my valued employees a birthday card and if possible we all go to the pub for a couple of drinks after work, pay time and a half Saturday, double time Sunday, we don't have a canteen but I pay for a catering company to stock vending machines (which I make a loss on), pay my lovely VALUED British staff time and a quarter on bank holidays even though I give them and myself the day off....after all, I want to enjoy my family life and so should they.
If I was an unscrupulous employer, I would have high staff turn over, I'm not and I don't, I respect my workforce and they respect me, whenever someone leaves or retires (by the way we had a lovely old lady who worked on reception brought us a homebaked cake on her last day and had clocked up 40 years service who was actually crying at leaving, I took this company over and kept the traditions going), I virtually had to risk everything, go to the bank and beg them to give me the money, the previous owners virtually sold this company to me for 1p, if it went tits up, I would be bankrupt and on a park bench, people worked and continue to work for me so whenever possible we all have a get together.
I'm sick of Poles and other UNWANTED immigrants whingeing, whining, bleating, yapping, moaning and complaining about working conditions in this country, I look after the people I employ, all you want to do is MOAN, MOAN, MOAN.
Carry on moaning, I'll just keep running my own business, my own way, I'm happy, my workforce is happy, my customers are happy and if you're not happy, well that's just too bad.
