Extra Information: In a recent Student Council meeting it was made clear that the SU bar was understaffed. This was having a knock on effect of reducing what could be on the menu, among other issues with availability of the facility. In order to increase bar staff, why not pay them decently? Hospitality is a hard area to work in, on top of that, as a Union, the SU should be leading the way in fair pay. The fact that £8.91 an hour, minimum wage, is what they offer, is frankly appalling. Paying your workers minimum wage shows that you would pay them literally nothing if you could and that you do not value them at all. Pay them more, and increase interest in employment in working in the SU, as well as encouraging other businesses to do the same.
