How’s it going? Ordered shopping to arrive at 7am—feeling bad for the delivery driver and my housemates.
Watched The Circle last night—irritatingly compelling even though Emma Watson was rubbish.
Currently proofreading my mum’s report on Tesco’s financials and pay rates—stunning inequity between the CEO/CFO and lower paid staff members. I know that hardly counts as news, but to see hard figures put to these things is always a bummer.
I know that game, friend.
Yeah, that’s what I mean by ‘irritatingly compelling’—it’s utterly banal social critique and the transitions from her having serious doubts/going transparent/screwing them over were jarring and badly delivered but I still found myself kind of absorbed in it. I think most of that blame lies with the people who did such a tremendous job of making everything look so shiny and inviting.
Yeah, that’s right, and 75:1 actually would be quite nice, relatively speaking. Of course you’d also have to make sure they couldn’t just receive the rest in bonuses, additions, etc.
Here’s a sample of some of the other highest earner’s salary:lowest earner’s salary ratios in the sector/related fields:
Morning everyone, what is up with it being Thursday already? I’m making coffee without grinding the coffee first as an experiment. It’s probably going to be horrible, but at least it will be caffeinated. Only 25 minutes of gentle boiling to go!
You know when someone is late for work because they didn’t set their alarm and you think ‘What kind of moron would do that…?’
Well, I woke up and rolled over, saw it was 7am.
‘Oh good another hour in bed yet’
Lay there for a bit and thought ‘Hang on, I leave the house at 8. Oh well, my alarm will go off in a few minutes’ (normally set it for about 10 past 7).
Checked time again and it was 7.20. Forgot to set my alarm, didn’t I?
I’m still at work ahead of time, mind you. Probably a good thing my internal alarm clock was still set…
Very little planned today, other than making some flatbread and roasted veg at lunch. Exciting.
Happy to be corrected if I am wrong, but I think with the John Lewis example everyone top to bottom gets an annual bonus as a uniform percentage of salary, so the boss’ earnings cannot get more inflated (I have various family members who work/have worked for the partnership, including my dad who just got his 35 year service badge )
