Paying the minimum wage is acceptable. [Oh no it isn’t!]

Posted on | Posted in Recruitment

With Christmas festivities in full swing, the people of Basingstoke are really getting into the spirit of the season; twinkling fairy lights, jolly giant snowman and sparkling reindeer have turned the town into a glittering winter wonderland, Festival Place is bustling (and so are the car parks!) and of course many of us will enjoy a belly laugh (or two) at the local pantomime.

But, wait! We’ve heard through the grapevine that there’s a new amateur dramatics company in town for the panto season, certain to give Sleeping Beauty at The Anvil a run for its money.

Pretty young Kyra works for her evil Stepmother who only pays her minimum wage [BOO, HISS]. Whilst her ugly step-sisters get to enjoy time-off, poor Kyra is forced to work late (without pay) on Christmas Eve [AHH].

Will Kyra get to meet her handsome ‘Basingstoke’ prince before the clock strikes twelve? You’ll have to watch and see…

The team at Wote Street People wish you a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!

Have a good one from

Meta, Maxine, Kyra, Madeline, Tracy and Matt

Big thanks to Taylor Papworth for filming our panto!

Be a ‘beachcomber’ this summer and consider recycling older workers

Over the last 20 years, we’ve moved towards a throwaway society in more ways than one. The debate around plastic pollution, in my mind, also reflects the recruitment conundrum of many older workers looking for jobs. Today, when we’ve finished with something, it’s simply taken away and “dealt with” with no remorse, no fuss and[…..]
