So what if it’s part time? Why does someone deserve to earn less for the same work just because it’s part time? If people are doing part time work to supplement their other job then that just proves that what they are being paid day to day isn’t enough, because people earning a living wage don’t need to supplement their work by working part time on weekends. That just further justifies the need for a living wage campaign.
You might think it seems fair, but the point of a living wage calculation us that it’s meant to reflect the amount of money needed to get by. What you think is fair is irrelevant.
We’re also based in London where the cost of living is higher, no way we should be almost bottom of that table.
And saying that they are probably employed by a third party company is just a cop out, as if that absolves us of any responsibility. Doesn’t seem to stop Chelsea paying their staff appropriately. They either employee them themselves or use a company that pays their staff fairly. What’s our excuse?
