All Bosses Are Bastards

I must thank Will of “A General Theory of Rubbish”, for drawing my attention to the following. And also for the above title, which I simply couldn’t improve upon.

“The worst excuse for not paying the national minimum wage was ‘He doesn’t deserve it – he’s a total waste of space’. This was followed by: ‘She only wanted £3 per hour’ and ‘I didn’t think the workers were worth te national minimum wage’. ‘I didn’t think it applied to small employers’ was also on the list, and ‘He’s disabled’.

“Other excuses included ‘They can’t cope on their own and it’s more than they would get in their own country’, and ‘The workers can’t speak English'”.

All the above comes from an official report by the Customs Service and Paymaster General Dawn Primarolo. And a hat-tip to Will, despite his continuing practice of calling my colleague the Priest a “wanker”.
