Government’s “Find a Job” Website Advertising £2-an-Hour Jobs

Great tale in The Times this morning that the government’s much-trailed new ‘Find a Job’ initiative has been advertising full-time work at a measly £2-an-hour, clearly in breach of minimum wage law. The adverts were deleted from the website when the Times approached DWP, but Guido has got hold of them. Here is a government sponsored full-time job as a sous chef paying just £2-an-hour. The minimum wage for over-21s is £7.38.

Or how about a part-time job as a kitchen porter in a hotel? The advert on the government’s website offered just £3.80-an-hour.

Guido fears for the level of expertise of spa therapists who are being paid just £4.05-an-hour, again well under the minimum wage.

And how did the government’s jobs website approve this advert for a £4-an-hour hotel housekeeper?

Needless to say the adverts have now all vanished. Slow clap.

Quote of the Day

Rowan Atkinson tells The Times

“All jokes about religion cause offence, so it’s pointless apologising for them. You should really only apologise for a bad joke. On that basis, no apology is required.”
