A restaurant chain has asked furloughed staff to loan the firm part of their wages or face the sack, a union claims.

 

Tomahawk Steakhouse wants employees to sign an agreement to lend 10% of their wages each month to cover their pension and national insurance contributions, the GMB Union says.

 

... you ****ing what now? :blink:

 

 

Yeah I thought the same reading this story earlier! 

Couldn't comprehend the nerve of them to even consider it.

Absolute shit show all round with this idiot spreading the Brazil variant god knows where.

Personally i think it's bullshit. What are the chances of one person arriving in the country, bringing this variant with them, using a home test kit and sending it off without his name and address on the test.

Probably relatively high.

Surely, if you were an employee of the firm, you'd be asking for a share in the company in return for helping it out.

One thing to come out of this after applying to be a vaccinator, I now have an enhanced DBS result. Cleared, BTW.

Still waiting to be "called up", as it were.

Only 20 million done so far dude. How did they manage without you?

I could have done 2 million single handedly in my back garden if only they'd let me.

Ever the optimist lol

You think I’m not being optimistic about Leicester struggling to come out of lockdown?

Too right! Last years fiasco will hit us again, of that I have little doubt.

Couple this with a lower uptake of the vaccine amongst a number of ethnic minority groups and kids returning to schools....

Watch this space....

My mum went a couple of weeks back and when she returned she was moaning about how they had managed to call her up with a bunch of OAP's.

(The funny thing is she is 78) 

Haha, just trying to arrange a mobility scooter for my dad. He’s always said he’d never use one on the basis that they’re for old people. He’s 93.

 

Edit: Hired one out for him to see if he likes it. Apparently it doesn’t go fast enough lol

From an NHS nurse:
“Sorry everyone but I NEED A RANT!! I have spent the last 3 days at work defending the Pfizer vaccine released to our area in the coming week. I have spent hours and hours of my time learning the PGD rules, the e-learning courses on reconstitution of the vaccine, the time scales for safety etc so I can vaccinate safely, this as well as all the work I and many others put in EVERY year to make sure we are vaccine safe in general! have read and learned the chapter in the DOH Green book and been on the MHRA( Medicines and Heathcare RegulatoryAgency) site to aid my knowledge further. Oh and by the way I am still doing my ‘day job’. I think I am in a good position to understand how the vaccine has come to be! So how come every Facebook user knows better???? Hundreds of very committed scientists have spent many thousands of hours including weekends holidays nights etc developing this vaccine 44,000 people ‘guinea pigs’ signed up for trials in 6 different countries to make this vaccine safe FOR ALL OF US ! But over the last 3 days I have had many patients saying I am not having this!!! One man thinks it’s being used to inject tracking devices???? one lady wanted it for her 88 yr old Dad but she wasn’t having it !! Many say ‘I am not being a guinea pig for a new vaccine’. WTF!!! Please everyone STOP LISTENING TO IDIOTS ON FACEBOOK who have NO evidence NO knowledge but like to spread fear and dissent —- their irresponsible rambling will probably be responsible for needless death the vaccine has been through ALL the very rigorous testing and trials that were needed.? I f you are lucky enough to be offered it take it with both hands !!
Please share the hell out of this ! We really need to counteract the ignorance and prejudice that is being spewed out. From an NHS Nurse. By the way people are telling me they can’t share it so copy and paste it x”

If we get to June and everyone has been offered the vaccine, what more can be done. No excuse to open up.

Great news about the vaccines.


Just hope this Brazilian variant doesn’t hamper the progress.

What a twat.   Hopefully no over 65s die as a result of the wasted vaccines caused by his bullshit.


They will. The French public aren’t exactly the most science-driven when it comes to vaccines and uptake polls were low as it was. I can’t imagine what this entire fiasco has done to public opinion on vaccines, but his intentions were clearly for ill (what else would he get from trying to trash a vaccine?) and it will cost his own people dearly. Probably one of the lowliest act a statesman could do.
