Of course we will be paying the National Living Wage of £9.15 per hour, just like LIDL because the London Borough of Brent support this and if your are a company we will give you a reduction in your Business Rates if you pay this. I would hope that any one that goes to work for the Brent Council is being paid this. Along with all the sub-contractors because we support this. ??????
How many people who work for Brent Council or their sub-contractors and associates are being paid this rate????
Post here, we would love to know, what is the real deal?
Tell it like it is.

'Place shapers' working for an 'iconic borough' do it for love!

Our ironic, sorry I meant 'iconic' borough isn't such a bad place. Happily there are philanthropic entrepreneurs who, having spotted the low-waged (presumably not by using thermal imaging!!) have opened up Easy Shop on the North Circular Road flogging goods at 25p a throw.

We can at least be proud that if we are going to host low wage payers, we can at least attract sellers of tinned soup at 25p a can to feed the low wage earners.

This isn't just any borough - this is an 'iconic' borough (spoken in the M & S voiceover).
