Data Protection: Using Employee Photos and Personal Details Online and in Marketing Materials

Work Experience... A valuable opportunity or "slave labour"

There was such a hullabaloo a few weeks ago about the big supermarket chains exploiting work experience to create a pool of "slave labour".  Whether the criticisms were right or wrong, there is absolutely no doubt that work experience is a great opportunity for the young unemployed to acquire some new skills, gain self confidence and add to their employability.

OK, so shelf stacking may not be mentally taxing and it may not be a great skill, but is it really so…

The National Minimum Wage will increase to £6.19 in Oct 2012.  Or c£220pw for a 37 hr working week.

Could YOU live on that?  

If this is what Joe Public is expected to live on for working 37 hrs pw, then perhaps that is where benefits should be capped or benchmarked...  Just a thought and I'm sure it won't be a popular one.  

£220 pw (£11k) for a full time job seems grossly unfair when (according to the media) some families…
