staff wages

Recommended Posts

Mnn.. A lot depends on where you are etc... But the saying, you pay peanuts, you get monkeys etc.. I now am in paid employment (part time) and the best offer of work gets me..

With my own experience, if you pay the minimum wage.. you will get a higher turnover, and not so dedicated staff.. Raise this, and you will attract the more mature person, that is looking for ling time work and commitment...

Let your suppliers know you are looking as they often hear about who is out there. If you are in a buying group let the other stores know as they might be looking at down-sizing and have someone good they could offer.

If someone is willing to re-locate from, say Birmingham, 'twould be likely they were not doing so for their wallet. Other way round, maybe.

In my area, on my last check (about 6mths.) the figures were
