Blog: Would you pay to do your job?

Catherine Sleep | 18 July 2003

Never let it be said I neglect any news source in my quest to deliver to your desktop food industry-related sillies. Especially on a Friday afternoon.

The Sun obliges today with the story of a Wal-Mart/ASDA cashier who flies in to Blackburn from her home in Spain every week to work three shifts. The £76 weekly wage she pockets barely covers the taxi ride to the airport, and she loses an average of £12 for every hour she works.

While it’s nice to see such loyalty among retail staff, the consensus must be that she’s a little bit barmy, no? I work as much for the stimulation and satisfaction as for the payslip, but if I actually had to pay for the privilege, uh oh, don’t think so…
